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



http://storagemagazine.techtarget.com/magPrintFriendly/0,293813,sid35_gci1150389,00.html suggests
that CIFS can export >320TB filesystems in the case of panasas, 16TB in the case of GFS. None if this talks about
limits on the 32bit windows client side though. Maybe there is none for the filesystem but only for the file size? (4G?)

Subject: [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) ?
