Re: Creating files more than 2 GB

Hi,

If your question is creating files more than 2GB, then yes, it is possible from
10.20. Refer the white paper on large files in /usr/share/doc/lg_files.txt

Txs.

Re: Creating files more than 2 GB

Yes u can.
Your file system should support >2GB files.Use Vxfs.
U can do it thru fsadm -o largefile option.
U can't tar them for backup.Use vxdump

Re: Creating files more than 2 GB

Nesan,

If you have created you filesystem with the largefiles option, you can create
files much larger that the 2gig. The default, even up to 11.0 of HPUX is 2
gig. The definition of how large a
file can be in a filesystem, is part of the filesystem definition itself.
I have created files as large as 8 gig. However,not all utilities support the
creation, or input of files this large.
