You reached the configured maximum of logical partitions for that volume.

Run

chlv -x 8192 vg03lv01

to increae this maximum and that's it.

8192 is just a suggestion, if you plan to increase the LV by a huge amount in the future choose a higher value. Choosing higher values does not do any harm, this maximum is just a precaution against admin mistakes (e.g "+3T" instead of "+3G" mistakenly specified).

By the way, the output you posted isn't useful at all in this case, except for the result of "lsvg -l appvg03 |grep dts" (and the error message, of course). You should have posted the result of "lslv vg03lv01"
