[Samba] Samba, SamFS and problems with large files (backup images)

we use Samba on a Solaris server with SamFS and a tape library for 
having access to the SamFS for Windows users.

We used Norton Ghost to create backup images of our workstations and 
sent them via network to the Solaris server. Restoring these images 
often failed because of "corrupted" image files.

We thought Norton Ghost might be the problem but another backup 
software, Acronis, fails, too.

Do you have experiences with Samba and SamFS with large files? Is there 
a maximum file size limit?

With best regards,
