System temporary tablespace pagesize exceeded

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
1) We have a table whose row size exceeds 4K which is page size of regular tablespace. So creation of this table failed and I had to create a bufferpool of 8K and a tablespace.

2) Now, when we try to insert record, we get System temporary tablespace pagesize exceeded.

3) System tablespace means holds default data dictionary meta data which is SYSCATSPACE. Temporary tablespace is used for sorts only when there are ORDER BY, GROUP BY, DISTINCT, MAX, MIN, AVG.

4) Then why point on system temporary tablespace during an INSERT?
