800xa System message: Device PDL Archive Device is full
We got some system message that correspond to the pdl archive in the IM, It says that "Device PDL Archive is full"
"Shadow of volume 4 on PDL Archive Device failded"

Read the archiving chapter of the IM configuration guide.
In most cases, you would like to move a saturated archive volume's content to some secondary media (CD, DVD, MO tape, etc) and flag the device as "emptied" so that it can be reused.
You can also set it to "automatic overwrite", but why then use archiving in the first place? Having longer retention period in the source logs is the same as not taking care of a full archive...
I don't generally work with archiving - there could be other aspects to it that I have no knowledge about, but this is my 2 cents of it... :-)
Also, your regional ABB support center should be able to assist you - please contact them if you need an answer.
