What is the max size a Auditing file can be set to?

[ Edited ]

I have attempting to create a Auditing log file larger than 5 digits/characters (A 5 digit/character spaces is the max space available is SAM) running audsys from command from give the error below but there is plenty of space. Is 5 digits/characters the max log file size available?

 

srvtest:/usr/sbin# /usr/sbin/audsys -x /AuditLog/log2 -z 100000

next audit file /AuditLog/log2
insufficient space available on audit file filesystem,
specify a different audit file or select a smaller AFS
auditing system unchanged

(These are really digits not chars.)

audsys(1m) says -z is in Kb.  You have asked for 100 Mb.  What does "bdf /AuditLog" show?

It also mentions that -x & -z are deprecated on 11.31.
