pk. I am now running Samba-2.2.7a and RedHat 8,
and i am still having a problem with files > 2gb in size.

after i mount a Windows share, I can't create large files
on it.

#ulimit -f
#mount -t smbfs -o username=3D'Administrator',password=3D'***'
   //x.x.x.x/C$ /mnt/win2kserver_cdrive

which successfully mounts the windows share on my linux box.

but if i=20
#dd if=3D/dev/zero of=3D/mnt/win2kserver_cdrive bs=3D1k count=3D3000000

at the 2gb mark, i get a=20
File size limit exceeded

Samba 2.2.7a supposedly fixed this problem, didn't it?
