$ERR_NOSPAC

24

No space exists for file on device

On an OPEN statement in output mode, the operating system indicated that the device didn’t have enough space left for the file to be opened or the record to be stored. This error can occur either because fewer storage blocks are available than are requested during preallocation of the file or because the directory structure for the device cannot accommodate more files.

The Novell operating system allows user log‑ins to be limited in the amount of disk space that the user can allocate. Novell version 3 and higher allows directories to have disk space restrictions as well. Such restrictions can cause $ERR_NOSPAC errors, even if hundreds of megabytes are available on the disk. The network administrator can use the Novell dspace.exe utility to check and change user and directory restrictions if such errors occur. Your users may want to consider eliminating these restrictions for certain directories and users.
