System reached the maximum number of processes or is out of memory

(1) SDI needs to create a new process to quiesce a pack or channel, but the system-imposed limit on the number of processes has already been reached. (2) SDI needs to execute a program but the system is out of memory.

(1) Stop any processes that are not needed, by having people log off the system or by using the kill command. (2) Free memory by doing system maintenance. In either case, increase max user processes with chdev -1 sys0 -a maxuproc='nnn' where nnn is the number you require. The current value can be obtained with `lsattr -E lsys0'. You need to be logged on as root to perform this operation. It may be useful to check the errno value against those in /usr/include/sys/errno.h.
