File size limit exceeded


Hello,

I am getting an error when I try to copy a 2.4 gig file from my desktop to my SLES 9.0 server running samba. The error message that I recieve after the file copies 2.0 gig to the server is: File size limit exceeded.

Do you know what this is from? Do you know how I can resolve my issue??

Thanks!

P.S.
I ran 'ulimit -a' and it comes back as "unlimited."

What version of samba is your SLES 9.0 server running? I know that SAMBA 2.x versions had a 2GB file size limit. I am not sure if this is dependent on the SMB protocol or just the SAMBA 2.x implementation. I do not think, though I am not sure, that Samba 3.x suffers from this limit.

I don't know nothing about samba. Maybe the headers have a 32 bit limit, or maybe the software wasn't compiled with _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64

Check the FAQ. 2gb is a known limit with 32-bit handling. The filesystem must support it too.
