Does HP-UX 11.11 support a 5tb NFS file system?

Does HP-UX 11.11 support a 5tb NFS file system?

With the current version of HP-UX 11.11 installed on a rp8440 I can not create a 5tb file system. I can have our storage team create a 5tb NAS share. Has anybody been able to mount a 5tb NFS file system on a server running 11.11? Is a 5tb NFS file system supported on HP-UX 11.11?

Thanks,
Randy

Shalom Randy,

I do not know what a 5th file system is.

What I do know is the highest version of NFS that 11.11 supports is version 3. There are no plans to add additional functionality to the OS, according to my sources at HP.

Correct, I was asking about a 5 terabyte NFS file system.

The NFS specialist Dave Olker has the answer in the above thread.

It looks like you can not get a 5TB over NFS in 11.11 (11iV1).

After reading Dave Olker's comments, it looks like I can have a 5 terabyte NFS file system but I am limited to a 2 terabyte file on 11.11, NFS version 3.

Thanks,

What a crazy world we live in when we lament that we can "only" have a 2 trillion byte file on an OS release that's about 10 years old.

I don't mean to ridicule Randy's needs or question. It's just another striking example of how fast the industry has changed. For those of you old enough to remember keypunch cards, I believe 2 TB is the equivalent of a card deck on the order of 2818 miles high. Don't drop the deck or spill the chad.
