File size limitations


Hi,

I'm running Redhat, kernel 2.6 and I had a couple of questions about file size limitations.

Is there a limit on the size of a single file on a samba mounted share? (I'd heard 2 GB)

Is there a limit on the size of a single file on a directly attached, via SCSI Ultra 320, storage device.

Is there a limit to the size a partition of a directly attached SCSI? (I'd heard 2 TB)

Thanks very much.

Re: File size limitations

If this is mounted on a windows remote share, the file limitation would be on that remote filesystem, unless you don't have large filesystem support compiled into your kernel as well.

Is there a limit on the size of a single file on a directly attached, via SCSI Ultra 320, storage device.

Depends on your kernel.

Depends on your kernel.

Hi,

Thank you for my replies. My kenel is the default one that comes with the Redhat Enterprise 4 binary CDs. So if that doesn't have support for these larger files than I don't have support for the larger files. Is there an easy way to check? I know very little about configuring and compiling kernels so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
