gunzip Value too large to be stored in data type


magic:/holdarea ==> ulimit
unlimited
Dba was able to gzip but now after I downloaded the file from backup server and try to gunzip it , it gives me this.
Any ideas ?
Thanks


magic:/holdarea ==> fsadm -F vxfs /holdarea
largefiles
magic:/holdarea ==> gunzip MASST.dmp.gz
MASST.dmp.gz: Value too large to be stored in data type
magic:/holdarea ==> uname -a

Hi Sammy,

try http://digilux.es/unix_linux/hpux/value-too-large-to-be-stored-in-data-type/

in your case just :

cat MASST.dmp.gz | gzip -d > MASST.dmp

hope it will help.

Re: gunzip Value too large to be stored in data type

Hi,
You could also check the gzip version with
# gzip -V
and get the last version.
"Largefiles is supported starting with public doman gzip version 1.3.1 and above."

Get the latest version here:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Gnu/gzip-1.3.12/

Hope it helps

Michal,
Why are making poor unix admin read espanol ( link ) ? :)
But anyway, I could make out the link in spanish says the same thing you mentioned.

Thanks, your workaround seems to be working.


Smatador,
For future purposes, I will download your gzip file and go with your suggestion as well and see how it works. Much appreciated.

Thanks to both for the solution
