PROGRESS .db file can exceed 2GB problem!

My PROGRESS's version is 6.1 (it's too old). The multi-user service exit when the .db file reach 2GB. How can I setup a new strategy even the DB data over 2GB? (My HP-UX files system can support single file over 2GB.)
Thanks a lot!

Re: PROGRESS .db file can exceed 2GB problem!

I don't know 'progress' but if you have 'largefiles' set up for your filesystem unless the application can handle the over 2Gb limit, then you will have a problem. This is a common problem, look at how 'tar' and 'cpio' work. They still have this problem. Suggest you look at a later version of 'progress' where the 'largefiles' option is supported.

When setting up a filesystem.

newfs -F vxfs -o largefiles

Below 11.11(11i) you need a largefiles parameter in the /etc/fstab file.

That is not needed in the 11.11 /etc/fstab file.

I know the solution: create multiple volume DB.
Thank you all!
