17G File size limit?



Hi everyone,
This is a strange problem I have been having. I'm not sure where the problem is, so I figured I'd start here.

I as having problems with Bacula stopping on 17Gig Volume sizes, so I decided to try to Just dd a 50 gig file. Sure enough, once the file hit 17 gigs dd stopped and spit out an error


(pandora bacula)# dd if=/dev/zero of=bigfile bs=1M count=50000
File size limit exceeded
(pandora bacula)#


(pandora bacula)# ll
total 20334813

/dev/hda1              99M   20M   75M  21% /boot

/dev/mapper/lvg01-coraid
                      812G  693G  114G  86% /mnt/coraid



There are a few layers on this partation, so I figured I'd start at the top with you guys and work my way down. The partation this size limit is on looks like so...

/mnt/coraid
+--------+
| Ext3   |
+--------+
| LVM 2  |
+--------+
| Raid 5 |
+--------+


So any one of these layers could be the problem. I was able to create a 100 Gig file on the /home partition, so perhaps ext3 is not the problem, but I'm really not sure.


The system is CentOs 4.1 running 2.6.13.2 (also tried 2.6.12.2)

Any insight would be great
