           Summary: rsync aborts transferring files larger than 2 GB
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.2
          Platform: PA-RISC
        OS/Version: HP-UX
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: vieser at porsche.de
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

the HP-UX port of rsync made by the HP-UX Porting Centre
(http://hpux.connect.org.uk/) seems not to be able to transfer files larger then
2 GB. We tested this on HP 9000 servers with HP-UX 11.0 and 11.11 . We always
get following output:

receiving file list...
1 file to consider
write failed on "/dir/filename.foo": File too large
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at receiver.c(227)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (113 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(342)

In all cases the filesystem was of type vxfs with largefiles enabled.

The rsync server and the rsync client are same version 2.6.2 :

# /usr/local/bin/rsync --version
rsync  version 2.6.2  protocol version 28

Capabilities: 64-bit files, socketpairs, hard links, symlinks, batchfiles,
              no IPv6, 32-bit system inums, 64-bit internal inums

I wasn't able to compile the rsync package by myself. So I can't say whether
it's a general problem on HP-UX or only with this compilation by the Porting Centre.
