Rules for creating storage areas and extents
When you are defining storage areas and extents in order to create a new database:
*The minimum information required in a .st file is one schema area extent definition statement and one primary recovery (BI) area extent definition statement.
*The minimum information needed to specify any extent is the storage area type and extent pathname. For example:
# Primary Recovery Area
b .
# Schema Area
d .
If you do not define a primary recovery extent path in the .st file, the PROSTRCT CREATE utility generates an error.
*You cannot use any of the reserved storage area names as application data storage area names.
