File Size Limit

I have a problem writing or copying a file 2GB or larger to either the second or third disk on my C8000. I've searched this forum and found some good information on this but still nothing to solve the problem.

I'm running hpux 11i, JFS3.3 and disk version 4 (from fstyp) on all 3 disks.

No problems on first disk.

Also, filesize limit is unlimited.

TIA for any help!

Is the filesystem largefile enabled? Check by running the command:
mkfs -m <raw-device-name>

This will display the options that were used to create the filesystem. If largefiles is not present, you cannot create files larger than 2GB on that filesystem.

Thanks blowtorch,

Actually, it wasn't but I just changed that on the two disks and its all good now.

Guess I forgot to read one of the search posts!! Smilie
