OSX 10.6 Server SMB bug with files > 2GB
« on: May 29, 2010, 12:09:24 AM »
It appears there is a bug in 10.6 OSX server which imposes a 2GB file limit.

The fix supposedly is effected by adding into smb.conf. (Can anyone verify that this does fix this issue?)

vfs objects = notify_kqueue,darwinacl
unix extensions = no
acl check permissions = no
nt acl support = no
stream support = no
ea support = no

There are also reports that in addition to the above changes, it is also necessary to uncheck the following options in the SMB configuration:

  • Enable oplocks
  • Enable strict locking
