Shalom Petr,

At the very least you are going to need a vxfs/JFS upgrade to support a file system that big.

What version of JFS are you using here?

You might want to see about breaking it up into smaller pieces.

Hi Petr:

At 11.11 a 2TB filesystem is the limit:

that I have to upgrade to HP-UX 11.23/11.31
- unfortunatelly - and at least purchase OnlinejFS license :-)

Thanks You ALL very much
