Cannot boot - Boot : Panic : File size out of range (EWS-UX/V unix)

Hey !

I am running EWS-UX/V (Rel 4.2) on NEC EWS/4800/330 station and I am having problems rebooting my station : I am getting the following message on display : BOOT : PANIC : File size out of range.

According to user guide, this error is occuring when a file exceeding the limit and/or /stand is probably damaged ...

I do not want to reinstall the whole platform but would like to fix it ...

Any idea ?

Do you have any kind of tape backups? Other than restoral from a backup, you may have to rebuild it..
