terabyte too big to mount?
Hey everyone. I have a problem here with my cifs mount point not working. I just upgraded my PC to have a terrabyte of RAID-1 storage. I named the share the exact same as it was before, but now that I have it all up and running, I am unable to mount it on either my mac or on my linux machine. The only error that makes any sense is the one linux is giving me when I attempt to manually mount the partition through the terminal. It tells me this:
mount error 12 = cannot allocate memory
Does this mean that I have too big of a partition for my linux machine to read or something? I don't want to have to reformat my windows shared drive, though I can if that is the case. But I haven't found any solutions that make any sense. Just curious if anyone else has ever seen this error and knows what it means.
Just a stab in the dark dude
I found this

Large Directory Support
Samba 3.0.12pre1 introduces a specific mechanism for dealing
with file services that frequently contain a large number of files
per directory. Historically Samba's performance has suffered
in such environments due to the translation from case
insensitive lookups by Windows client to the case sensitive
storage mechanisms used by UNIX filesystems.
