    space and without a file size limit.
    
    
    L2/Customer diagnostics:
    
    Running the following command to define a 500MB volume
    "/fs1/vol1" to storage pool "stg1" :

    The command failed:

    * USERS AFFECTED: All Tivoli Storage Manager server users of   *
    *                 the DEFINE VOLUME command.                   *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: See ERROR DESCRIPTION.                  *
    *                      Local Fix:                              *
    *                      For the sequential file storage pool,   *
    *                      can create a large volume outside of    *
    *                      Tivoli Storage Manager by using a       *
    *                      utillity such as dd and then using      *
    *                      the Define Volume command.              *
    *                      As an example, the following command    *
    *                      creates a 5 megabyte file.              *
    *                      "dd if=/dev/zero of=/testdir/test.dd    *
    *                      bs=5M count=1"                          *
    *                      From a Tivoli Storage Manager           *
    *                      administrative session, the             *
    *                      following command would add the         *
    *                      above file as a sequential volume       *
    *                      "define volume seqpool                  *
    *                      /testdir/test.dd"                       *
    *                      where seqpool is a sequential file      *
    *                      storagepool and /testdir/test.dd        *
    *                      is the name of the file that was        *
    *                      created outside of Tivolli Storage      *
    *                      Manager.                                *
    *                      For the random access(DISK) storage     *
    *                      pool, can use SMIT to create raw        *
    *                      logical volume, and then using the      *
    *                      Define Volume command.                  *
