    * USERS AFFECTED: All DB2 for z/OS V8 and DB2 9 for z/OS       *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: DFSORT MSGICE122A FILSZ VALUE INVALID   *
    *                      and ABEND04E RC00E40005 from REBUILD    *

    *                      space.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply corrective PTF when available.         *
    ****************************************************************
    A REBUILD INDEX was run on a segmented table space with over 14
    million pages in the table space.  An error in a calculation
    computing an approximate number of rows in the table space
    caused the utility to pass FILSZ=999999999999999 to DFSORT.
    This caused DFSORT to issue MSGICE122A FILSZ VALUE INVALID and
    terminate with return code 16, which caused the utility ABEND04E
    RC00E40005.
    

Problem conclusion

  • REBUILD has been changed to calculate the estimate of the number
    of rows using 8 byte variables to avoid the error.
