Resolve G1PIOMGR: Filename MPPINA incurred an I/O error -- Operation: O Status: 9/194 using Merge/Purge Plus

Issue

When running Merge/Purge Plus 6.4.3 on Aix, this error was received:

+MPP30 BGN 10/04/2013 20:35:44
G1PIOMGR: Filename MPPINA incurred an I/O error -- Operation: O Status: 9/194
** PROGRAM TERMINATED DUE TO ERROR **

Cause

The input file is this size -

DD_MPPINA:    -rw-rw-r--    1 dsopera  dstage   10421005980 Oct 04 20:09 /dsprojects/ConsumerData/ETLconsumer04.01.INA
  
10,421,005,980  - so it is 10 gigs

This is an issue with handling a file this size. 

Resolution

UPDATED: September 1, 2017
Asked the for this information to make sure they do not have file size restrictions:
 `ulimt –a > pb.out`

Here is the output from the pb.out file. T
hey are unlimited:

$ ulimit -a

time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) unlimited
stack(kbytes) 4194304
memory(kbytes) unlimited
coredump(blocks) unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 2000
threads(per process) unlimited
processes(per user) unlimited

Here is the resolution:
The problem was a missing Micro Focus Cobol File Handler configuration file (extfh.cfg) in order to set the FILEMAXSIZE parameter value to “8” (Does not restrict file size)
