[Linux-cluster] largest CIFS/Samba export? largest GFS export?



What are current size limits for large storage pools. I was considering
aggragating 20 2TB luns on a fibre SAN with LVM2 into one 40TB volume,
create a filesystem on it with XFS and export it both with NFS v3 to linux clients
as well as with samba to windows clients.
 
The linux clients are all 2.6 kernel 64bit, so they should not have an issue with this,
but what about the 32bit windows clients running windows2003 and windowsxp ? 
 
Do you have any experience exporting larger than 2TB filesystems to windows clients through samba?
 
Does GFS have similar restrictions (linux clients only assumed) ?
