Fbackup aborts exactly at 2 GB

i tried to take a backup by using fbackup command. But it exactly aborted after taking backup of 2GB data. pleasse guide me how should i proceed to overcome this problem.
The command i used is:
Code:
fbackup -0 -y -f /dir1 \
                -g fbackup_graph \
                -c fbackup_config

The output is
Code:
fbackup(3014): WRITE ERROR: could not write to the output file
fbackup(3004): writer aborting
fbackup(1002): Backup did not complete : Reader or Writer process exit

The /dir1 has more than 100 GB of free space, and data i tried to backup is sum of 22 GB

Because you are not writing to a tape, the type of filesystestem is important...
I hope for you its JFS and you have Online-JFS product...
Most probable is your Filesystem was not created with largefiles option...

Is the output from the command:
Code:
ulimit

4194304? If it is, you are running with a maximum file size limit of 2GB for processes you start. If that is your problem, you'll need extended privileges to up your limit.
