NFS Problems

Hi

I am having problems moving files from a VMS box to HPUX box via NFS

NFS Client = Alpha DS10 VMS v7.3-1 TCPIP v5.3 (Test box, straight from install CD no patches etc applied)

NFS Server = RX2660 iTanium HPUX 11iv3 (upto date patches applied) 'largefiles' enabled on VxVM volumes


from VMS mounted share using..

TCPIP> MOUNT DNFS1: /HOST="unix_host" /PATH="/blah/blah"

When trying to copy files (most of which are >2GB) I get the errors below...

%COPY-E-WRITEERR, error writing DNFS1:[000000]MAMVOL1.GLS;1
-RMS-F-FUL, device full (insufficient space for allocation)
%COPY-W-NOTCMPLT, DKB100:[MADSM.DATABASE]MAMVOL1.GLS;1 not completely copied
%COPY-E-CLOSEOUT, error closing DNFS1:[000000]MAMVOL1.GLS;1 as output
-RMS-F-FUL, device full (insufficient space for allocation)

There is plenty of free space (>100gb) on the target unix host

any ideas. is there any file size limits with the versions I am using ?

Thanks
Steve

Re: NFS Problems

Steve,

OpenVMS TCPIP V5.3 only contains a NFS V2 client, which imposes a file size limit of 2 GB.

A NFS V3 client is apparently only available with OpenVMS V8.4 and TCPIP V5.7 ECO2 (or higher).
