Error Copying Large Mac Files to W2K Server

I have an eMac client machine running 10.4.7 and a W2K SP4 file server. I am attempting to copy a Mac file (10 GB in size) to the W2K server and am receiving the following error on the Mac:

Error 1309
The operation could not be completed because an unexpected error occurred.
(fileBoundsErr: file's EOF offset mark or size is too big)

During my troubleshooting I found that I was successful copying the same Mac file to a different file server which was installed as a W2K3 server. I am unable to continue to use this testing file server in production so this is not a permanent fix.

I then upgraded my original file server to W2K3 but the problem still exists.

Does any one have a solution for this problem?

found this also.

"An error -1309 is an error message indicating that you have surpassed the 2 GB limit.
You may not have enough temporary space on your hard drive for the temporary files that are created. Do you have more than 2 gigabytes available?"

Server HDs are NTFS and plenty of space on the hard drive. At least 215 GB free. On the Mac, the file system is Journaled HFS+ with plenty of space as well.
