Running Oracle release on OpenVMS

After installing the patchset, users are now getting the following error when trying to spool output:

   SP2-0308: cannot close spool file

There is ample disk space available.

This is only happening on disks where OpenVMS disk quotas have been implemented.

Specifically where the remaining available quota is less than 32MB.


Installation of the  patchset.
