Is there a known limitation with large (> 2GB) files across samba CIFS
connections to an AIX samba server?
Samba 2.2.7 (from IBM's AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications)
Windows 2000 (SP4)
Both the AIX and Windows file systems support large files (tested to a
size of 12GB). An ftp of a 6.3GB file between both machines works [once
ulimit is adjusted is to relieve the default 2GB soft limit on file
size.] However when a file copy is attempted using an AIX share mounted
on a Windows 2000 client, the copy fails at the 2GB mark.
