Cannot copy Files > 2GB

Martin Kammerlander

Hi all

I'm using Samba version 3.0623 on my rhel3 with kernel 2.4.21
I mounted a windows partition with the command "smbmount".
Now I have the problem, that I cannot copying files which are larger than 2GB.

The cp command starts and everything works fine until the 2GB are reached. Then
the bash gives me the error: "The maximum file size is exceeded"


the /var/log/messages file gives the following output:

Aug 26 10:17:50 mypc kernel: smb_get_length: recv error = 512
Aug 26 10:17:50 mypc kernel: smb_request: result -512, setting invalid
Aug 26 10:17:50 mypc kernel: smb_retry: caught signal
Aug 26 10:17:50 mypc kernel: smb_retry: caught signal
Aug 26 10:17:51 mypc kernel: smb_retry: successful, new pid=6082, generation=10

What can I do to solve this?

thanks
martin

Re: Cannot copy Files > 2GB

This is a know limitation of the smbfs kernel driver.  This can be
overcome by using the cifs kernel driver, and mounting using the
following syntax:
mount -t cifs //smb-server/share /path/to/mount/ -ousername=myuser
