I wonder if anyone can help?
We are running vertias volume manager 3.5 on a solaris 8 sun V880 box.
I am trying to tar up large amounts of data under volume manager
partitions (not veritas file system). When the tar (this is using GNU
tar) gets to about 2 GB it bombs out with the following error:
/usr/local/bin/tar: Cannot write to
File too large
/usr/local/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Similar errors are produced with just the normal solaris tar.
I have heard people talk "Is your file system flagged largefile", how
do you check this and how do you change it if, it isn't set for large
