How much space have you allocated for minfree? post the output of df -h and fstyp -v /path/to/root/block/diskdevice.

Brian UtterbackPrinciple Software EngineerCommented:
As Rowley was leading to, there is a parameter on UFS file systems called "minfree" which defaults to 10%. Once this threshold is reached, it is as if the file system was full for users other than root. This is done for two reasons. One is to ensure that root has enough space to allow root to log in and take remedial action. The other is that UFS performance degrades rapidly as it has less free space to work with.

However, with modern large disks, this can result in massive amounts of wasted space. You can use the tunefs command to change the minfree setting on the fly. Luckily minfree happens to be a FS parameter that is easily changed. See the man page for tunefs for details, but it is very simple to run.

By the way, you might consider running a ZFS filesystem instead of UFS. It has no minfree limitation, and is in general much easier to work with.

I would suggest using the truss command on the ftp server during the transfer to capture exactly what error is returned by the write command.

Also, try putting ftp in debug mode and watch what happens. To do this:

1/ svcadm disable ftp
2/ edit syslog.conf and add the following lines:

daemon.debug                        /var/adm/messages
daemon.info                              /var/adm/messages

Doesn't have to be /var/adm/messages, this is for example only.

3/ svcadm restart system-log
4/ open a duplicate session and tail -f /var/adm/messages if you want...
5/ start ftp manually in another window: /usr/sbin/in.ftpd -sld

You should see detailed debug info which may or may not give you/us some pointers as to what the problem is.
