Rules for Using CREATE DATABASE
The following rules apply to CREATE DATABASE:
The maximum number of databases and users for any one system is 4.2 billion.
When a database contains a default journal table, that journal table shares the PERMANENT
storage capacity of the database with its data tables.
If necessary, the defined PERM, SPOOL, or TEMPORARY space is changed to the highest
multiple of the number of AMPs on the system less than or equal to the requested space.
When a CREATE DATABASE request is performed, the system places an EXCLUSIVE lock on
the database being created.
You can only specify options once.
For more information about space management, see Database Administration.
