hi experts,

 I have this HP rp2450  HP-UX B.11.11 and I was copying a file to the server and encoutered many write errors similar to this:

SCSI: Async write error -- dev: b 31 0x01f000, errno: 126, resid: 49152,
        blkno: 8170032, sectno: 16340064, offset: 4071145472, bcount: 49152.


What does this mean?

it looks suspiciously like you are hitting the 4GB limit. is the filesize  greater than 4 gigabytes?  if so then not all filesystems even programs can handle this. I can't remember the rules for largefile support on hpux , but that will give you enough to look for in patches and filesystem parameters

Hi dlethe,

  I'm not familiar with this OS at all. How would I check if the filezise is bigger than 4gb?

ls -l FILENAME will return size in bytes along with a lot of other things like permissions.  This command is good for all unix / linux variations as well, so it's one worth remembering ;)

2GB is the file limit. Once you are past that depending on the filesystem a file can be as big as 2TB

dlethe,

 this command didn't do anything for me ls -l FILENAME  maybe I typed it wrong? first I think I need to find the file size that is hitting the 4gb limit and then I will need your help to fix that. Please keep in mind I don't have any experience with this OS, so be detailed.
