We are running under Unix Solaris 2.5.1. I have heard that there is a maximum file size of 2MB. Is this true? What happens after a file exceeds this limit? Is there a way around it?

Thanks.

NO, it's not true.
max file size usually depends on kernel configuration.
It may also be limited by the shell (see limit or ulimit command).
