I found a usenet article which had some info in it that may help other
AIX users who are having issues.

in /etc/security/limits   Check all the stanzas for fsize = 

it will probably have some number in it like 2018261

That is what is limiting your filesize.   Change fsize = -1   logout
and back in.  You should be able to use rsync to copy large files.

Seems to be working in my case
