large file limitation Veritas

Subject: RE: large file limitation

Thanks to all for your replies, obviously many options but I went with
the option below to use fsadm to reconfigure the FS to use largefiles on
the fly, Thanks to VXFS, and also thanks to James Scott for a similar
reply. Worked like a charm.

VxFS. Good :-)

2GB not an issue, can enable on the fly without unmounting etc.
/usr/lib/fs/vxfs/fsadm -o largefiles /MOUNTPOINT

( ex: /usr/lib/fs/vxfs/fsadm -o largefiles /data1)


/usr/lib/fs/vxfs/fsadm /data1

There you are, that is why you have Veritas :-)
