Linux large files

By phil.kesteven ·
Hi all,

I'm currently in the process of copying users PST (used in Outlook 2000) files from a either a Linux server or a 2000 server to a SUSE server. The only problems we've got is
1) the files are all over 500MB 2) the files copied over from the linux/2000 servers to SUSE ok, all permissions are OK, the users are setup correctly, but when you try and add them into the Mail part of control panel, the system crashes (typical blue screen of death) and reboots. We can copy the files off the SUSE server onto the desktops, and it works fine.

Any ideas?
Someone mentioned here if the server supports large file sizes (which I've never come across yet).

It's a little confusing at least to me, what are trying to do. Do you mean want to import this .pst file to a SuSE Mail Client, or you just move it to a samba file server, then open it with MS OutLook 2000 from a windows client.

Linux support up to 2Gb maximum FILESIZE under 32-bit versions.

I've tried use ms outlook datafile (.pst) from a fileserver, and think it's not a wise solution, I always get a "frozen outlook", I don;t know why.
