Hey folks,


I've seen questions similar to this asked in the archives, but didn't really
find a suitable answer.


I'm trying to send backups to a Windows2000 share, and I'm having trouble
with large files:


[root at mail backups]# cp -R 20050208/ /mnt/backup/ 

 File size limit exceeded


It only copies 2,147,483,647 bytes, and the file is 5,030,998,091.  I could
split up the archive, but it won't permanently fix the issue.


Is there any way I can configure Samba 2.2.12 to handle files larger than
4GB (preferably without a recompile)?

I'm running RH 9.0 and a pre-built RPM from the Fedora Legacy project,
