Network AIX cp error: "A file or directory in the path does not exist"

Hello fellow UNIX fans,
I’m running AIX 4.3 and getting an error message “cp: /a/file2.db: A file or directory in the path does not exist” when I run the following command:
cp /b/file.db /a/file2.db
It stops every time about 95% of the way through the copy process at 1,073,741,312 bits.
The destination directory has plenty of room and already exists. I’m on the root user. It does the same error message if I try to send it to a different directory.
Is there some sort of file size limitations in AIX 4.3? Could the file be corrupt? Are there any alternative commands that might work?
Thank you,
Jackson

Thank you! That was the problem. I changed the default user's fsize and then logged off and logged back on.

Thanks again.
