1) the first thing kill the Server process (kill -15 <pid of dsmser> or kill -9  <pid of dsmserv>

2) extend recovery log

dsmfmt -m -log /home/lpar/p24/tsmlog/log003.dsm 2000
dsmserv extend log /home/lpar/p24/tsmlog/log003.dsm 2000

3) BAckup DB DEVclass=DUMPDEV Type=Full Wait=Yes (this make empty the recovery log)

PS: if you have no problem on TSM but you want to extend recovery log then run this command:

define logvolume /home/lpar/p24/tsmlog/log003.dsm formatsize=2000

exten log 2000

for db

define dbvolume …. … ….
