not able to create filesystem beyond 1 TB

Hi , I am trying to create FS of 2 TB ( rp4440 running hpux 11i with EMC 320 storage ) , the filesystem size is restricting to 1TB only , is there some patch that needs to be installed for creating larger filesystems ?

thanks in advance

Could you post how you tried to create the filesystem.

I assume you're trying to create as vxfs and not HFS.

Cheers

FS type is VXFS only , creating using SAM

i'm assuming that you created the physical volume and it was fine.
what's the output of the newfs command????
use it instead of sam if you can please

I'd stay away from SAM. Use command line.
