File name limit???

Hi Gents,

I am moving files from one netpp volume to a new volume created on an FAS3210 , ontap 8.0.2P3-& mode, and am getting this issue then files with longer names (more than 32 characters it seems) ;

" mv ~/0123456789012345678901234567890123456789 oldessimports/ mv: cannot create regular file `oldessimports/0123456789012345678901234567890123456789': File too large "

I have not come across this before , and am stuck as i have a number of key files with longer names ( closer to 50 char) to move.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appricated, as i really need to move the files!

Would be ahppy to provide more info if needed.




Re: File name limit???

It seems you are moving files using "mv" command at your Unix box.

Have you tried with "rsync" ?
