ftp on hp-ux 11.23

Hi Gentleman

I need to transfer a large file (7GB) from my windows 2003 server to an HP-UX 11.23. It stops after transferring about 2GB.
Are there any parameters to adjust?

Thank you for help.

hi wali;

it is clear that you are transferring file to a filesystem which does not support largefiles;

you should transfer you file to another filesystem that supports largefiles, look at fs by mount -p.

Do you have largefiles enabled on the file system where you are trying to put this?

# fsadm /var
fsadm: /etc/default/fs is used for determining the file system type

This sounds like your receiving filesystem (on the HP-UX) server doesn't have 'largefiles' enabled.

To check the status of a filesystem you can do:

# mkfs -m -F vxfs /dev/vgXX/lvolN


# fsadm -F vxfs /mountpoint


# fsadm -v /dev/vgNN/rlvolX

To enable 'largefiles' do, where you do *not* have OnlineJFS installed:

# umount /mountpoint
# fsadm -F vxfs -o largefiles /dev/vgXY/rlvolN

...note the raw device.

...or, if you have OnlineJFS:

# fsadm -F vxfs -o largefiles /mountpoint
