[Linux-cluster] Can't create files bigger than 3864 bytes on GFS


I'm currently trying to set up GFS on a couple of Debian Testing boxes. I've got the GFS setup and mounted, however I'm having trouble writing to files. Using vi, cp, whatever.

If the file is up to 3864 bytes (one inode) it's fine. But if I try to edit a file to make it bigger than that size, or copy in a file larger than that, the result is a zero byte file.

I've also tried doing GFS with the lock_nolock mechanism, and I get the same result. The kernel is 2.6.26, and the Debian version of the tools is based off of cluster-2.03.06. My filesystem is GFS, not GFS2.

Has anyone seen anything like this before? I'm a newbie to GFS, so I'm not even sure where to start looking for an answer. Even some help in that direction would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.
