    file size limit on sun solaris

    Hi, all
    We have two unix boxes, one does not have file limit size and the other one has limit size of 2 gigs.
    Is there anyway I can check what is the limit size on the server. I know there is command, but I don't remember. I really appreciate if someone can help.

    what version of solaris ?

    In earlier versions 2.6 the OS installation should be done with > 2GB file size support. Recent versions should support > 2GB files by default. You don't need a command to test this. Find a empty file system and try creating a file with specified size using makefile command, you will know wheteher you OS installation supports >2GB files or not.

    Thanks. Our version is 2.8.
    Actually, I found that, the Sun support filesize > 2.gig by default.
    Veritas volumn manager'd default does not support > 2.gig, so we just enable the feature, it works now.

    give the command

    mountall => will show all mounted file systems. Check the option "largefiles" or "nolargefiles"

    largefile => >2 GB is enabled.
    nolargefiles => >2 GB not enabled.

    That would be mount (with no options), not mountall.
