Sentinel Database Manager (SDM) shows a tablespace named 'PRIMARY' that is nearly full or completely filled. Sentinel tablespaces should not be filling to capacity or insertions to the database could stop due to a lack of room.


The PRIMARY tablespace in Microsoft SQL-Server is not part of the Sentinel system directly but instead is the default tablespace in this database system. SDM does not by default manipulate this tablespace and it should be maintained separately by the system's Database Administrator (DBA) since it is part of the database system natively.
