Hello people

The above log info is an error thrown while doing a fast export. The amount of data I am trying to export is approximately 13gb. Is there some sort of a limit on the amount of data that can be exported? Or is the error due some other reason?

Re: Size Limit of Fast Export?

Found in "Teradata Fastexport Reference"

On UNIX MP-RAS operating system, the maximum file size that
is supported by the FastExport utility is 2 gigabytes.
On Windows, Solaris SPARC, AIX, and HP-UX operating
systems, there is no file size restriction.

Hope it helps
