Unhappy is there a file size limit to tar backups?

I am noticing large files -over 2 gigs- not being backed up on the Samba server, while files in the same sub directory are successfully backed up.

Is this a file size limit problem?
If so, any way to correct?

We are running Samba Red Hat 9.

Yes, it is a file size limitation with samba. There is a mount option lfs which enables large file support but not sure if RH9 supports this option.
