NFS problem in 2.4.21 (RHEL ES 3 upd 2)

Post by Chuck Camp » Wed, 09 Mar 2005 01:50:12


I've just built a cluster of dual Opteron boxes, running RHEL 3 update 2
x86_64 OS.

I have problems creating files larger than 2GB on an NFS mounted filesystem.

Creating files larger than this on local filesystems is no problem.

Filesystems are all ext3. Coreutils is version 4.5.3-26.

I can't find any "largefile" flags, etc in nfs, nfsd, rpc.nfsd, rpc.mountd,
exports or exportfs man pages.

Any pointers to other docs, etc. greatly appreciated.

thanks,

Are you perhaps using NFSv2? If so, I suggest you try NFSv3, as the
NFSv2 protocol does not support 64-bit file sizes.

Cheers,
