File size limit exceeded with Samba mount
I've tried everything I could with respect to what I read in previous posts. I have RHE 3.8. I have verified that there are no limits imposed (looked in limits.conf and did ulimit -a). I am logged in as root. I am sharing a folder on my XP system to the Linux system.
I mounted by:
smbmount //ip_addr/sharename /windows_share -o username=administrator,lfs
I have tried using the mv command to move it. I also tried using:
dd if=file of=/windows_share/filename bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror
target disk is NTFS.
source file is approx 3GB which I created between two linux boxes using dd and netcat. (I'm backing up a partition)
In all my tries I am getting File size limit exceeded. This happens when the transfer is at 2GB.
I also tried a different disk on the target which I had newly formatted as ntfs with blocksize 4096.
Your help is appreciated.
