You will see the error message above if you’re trying to create a tar file with very large size. This is caused by limitation set up on AIX to prevent user to create large files. To set no size limitation on creating files, edit the /etc/security/limits, go to the “default” section, and change “fsize” value to “-1”. Here is how mine lookslike :
default: fsize = -1 core = 2097151 cpu = -1 data = 262144 rss = 65536 stack = 65536 nofiles = 2000
Save, and try to start the tar process again.
