Hi everybody,

        I'm trying to create a file on a smb share and it stops at 2 Gb.
        samba release 2.2.7a with this patch 
        --- libsmb/clireadwrite.c       19 Dec 2002 16:12:41 -0000
        +++ libsmb/clireadwrite.c       30 Dec 2002 04:04:37 -0000

        kernel is 2.4.20 with acl patch.
        I've checked, the creation of files larger than  Gb: it's ok.
        I have this messages in /var/log/messages of the client machine 
when I reach the 2Gb :
                 kernel: smb_get_length: recv error = 5
                kernel: smb_request: result -5, setting invalid
                kernel: smb_retry: successful, new pid=18489, generation=2
