Info-ZIP V2.32 Error ZIPPING DSM .GLS files

I am trying to ZIP four DSM .GLS files and I get the following error when the process gets to the fourth file:

zip error: Input file read failure (was zipping [.DSMMGR]ADTVOL4.GLS)

The commands are:
$ ZIP "-VV" ADT $1$DGA320:[DSMMGR]ADTVOL1.GLS
$ ZIP "-VV" ADT $1$DGA320:[DSMMGR]ADTVOL2.GLS
$ ZIP "-VV" ADT $1$DGA320:[DSMMGR]ADTVOL3.GLS
$ ZIP "-VV" ADT $1$DGA320:[DSMMGR]ADTVOL4.GLS

Any ideas on what is causing this error will be greatly appreciated.

Did the error also occur, when you issue just one command? e.g.
$ ZIP "-VV" ADT $1$DGA320:[DSMMGR]ADTVOL%.GLS

Yes - I received the same error which led me to trying the four separate commands.

Kathleen,

do you also get the same error, when you just issue the 4th command with no ADT.ZIP file present ?

Is there anything 'special' regarding the 4th file ? File size ? Attributes ?

Zip 2.x is limited to input and archive files
smaller than 2GB.

> File size ?

Good question. Also, how big was the archive
after the first three files were added? What
happens if you start with ADTVOL4.GLS?

The .ZIP hit 2gb. Is there a version that can handle larger files?

Thank you.

I will use plan B - VMS backup to tape.

Re: Info-ZIP V2.32 Error ZIPPING DSM .GLS files

The latest released Info-ZIP programs, UnZip
5.52 and Zip 2.32, are too old for large-file
support. UnZip 6.0 and Zip 3.0 will offer
large-file support when they are released,
but the release date is still unknown.
Watch for an announcement at:

http://www.info-zip.org/

Pre-release ("BETA") source kits for UnZip
6.00c and Zip 3.0e should be available from
the Info-ZIP FTP server (ftp.info-zip.org),
but that server failed a while ago, and not
everything has been restored on the current
FTP server. For now, you can get them from
my server at:

http://antinode.org/ftp/info-zip/unzip60c.zip
http://antinode.org/ftp/info-zip/zip30e.zip

And you _will_ need UnZip 6.x to deal with a
large-file archive created by Zip 3.x.

There are no known data loss or corruption
problems with these programs, but UnZip 6.00c
will emit a spurious warning message in some
cases. (Look for "76 bytes".) If you have
any other trouble, please let me know, or
complain using the form at:

http://www.goatley.com/hunter/zip-bug.html

If you're in the mood for more adventure,
there are newer pre-pre-release not-even-BETA
kits at:

http://antinode.org/ftp/info-zip/unz60d05_s2.zip
http://antinode.org/ftp/info-zip/zip30f32_s2.zip

_That_ UnZip should solve the spurious
warning message problem (as well as adding
optional bzip2 compression, and a few other
bits of entertainment).
