Description Gerry Reno 2003-06-15 17:10:10 UTC
I am using tar to create a filesystem archive that results in an archive of
approximately 4GB.  The tar command has no problem creating the archive on an
ext3 filesystem.  However, when I attempt to create the archive on a smbfs
mounted filesystem the archive fails at exactly 2GB.  I am using RedHat 8.0 with
the 2.4.18-19.8.0 kernel and have upgraded SAMBA from 2.2.7 to 3.0.0beta using
the RedHat 8.0 version of samba-3.0.0beta1-1.i386.rpm.
Comment 1 Gerry Reno 2003-06-15 17:18:19 UTC
Add'l info:  SAMBA is mounting a W2K NTFS directory.
Comment 2 Andrew Bartlett 2003-06-21 19:15:36 UTC
This is outside our control.  This is a bug in kernel-side smbfs.
Comment 3 Andrew Bartlett 2003-06-21 19:18:17 UTC
See http://www.hojdpunkten.ac.se/054/samba/ for some (experimental) patches.
