This is why you have been getting the error. If you changed this printer file as follows, the error message you have been getting won't occur anymore:
CHGPRTF FILE(QPDSPMSG) MAXRCDS(*NOMAX)
The "danger" in doing this is that a job could theoretically encounter programming problems resulting in it getting into a "loop" while printing to QPDSPMSG. If this happens with the *NOMAX setting, it will continue to create output until system storage is completely used up. This is not good, because your system would shut down! If this is a concern, then you may want to just increase the size value for MAXRCDS to something like 1,000,000 instead of using *NOMAX.
