 Advisory Information

LAST UPDATE: 2007-04-03


This patch corrects an AdvFS problem that results in vdump command not backing up large advfs files (> 8GB) properly

Programs using the fcntl (F_GETMAP) call for AdvFS files greater than 8GB will not receive correct extentMap information. For programs such as vdump, this results in files greater than 8GB not being backed up properly.


The following version is affected:

HP Tru64 UNIX v 5.1B-4
