Description

Problem when i try to install Autocad 2007 under Guest W2003 server, Host Kubuntu 7.10. The Guest disk is NTFS.

Message :

Host system reported that the file limit has been exceeded. VM execution is suspended. You need to move the file to a filesystem which allows bigger files.

ID Erreur : DevATA_FILETOOBIG

What is your host OS and host filesystem ? What hardware ?

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

You are using a file system (on the host) that doesn't support files larger than 4 GB. (fat32?)

-Technologov

s i said, host is Kubuntu 7.10, guest is W2003 server NTFS. Hardware is P4 hyperthreading 3.2GHz + 2G0 ram

Sandervl73, the host system is Kubuntu and the problem raise with a file of 700 Mb, so....

yamlc:

  1. Try to disable hyper-threading in host OS or in BIOS. (hyper-threading has rare bugs)
  1. Try to enable or disable VT in VirtualBox (if you have that - most P4's don't, but check it)

# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep vmx

  1. Try on different host filesystem (and different hard disk partition, if possible)
  1. Try using a different file system in guest (FAT32)
  1. Give use output of 2 commands: "mount" and "df -h"

DevATA_FILETOOBIG means that you host file system is full. How much memory is free on the file system which contains the .vdi file?

My vdi is maximum 20Go. At the moment it is 4Go and i have 19Go free on the file system that contains the vdi file.

  1. Try to disable hyper-threading in host OS or in BIOS. (hyper-threading has rare bugs)

Still not tried

2-Try to enable or disable VT in VirtualBox (if you have that - most P4's don't, but check it) change nothing

  1. Try on different host filesystem (and different hard disk partition, if possible)

tried from my ext3 linux partition, nothing changed

  1. Try using a different file system in guest (FAT32)

Not tried, all my vdi is in NTFS

Well,

I cloned my vdi and now, i can't even copy a file of 2Mo from one shared folder into the vdi... I forgot to mention that i have Serial ATA HDD...

Do you mean that even if my guest is 4Go and defined to be maximum 20Go i need 20Go free on my host disk to run the vm ??

comment:10 Changed 6 years ago by frank

No. But you located your .vdi file on the vfat partition, right? In this case the maximum file size is 4GB. This is a file system limit, not a VBox bug. Locate the file on a partition with another file system, for example on /dev/sda7 => /.

  • Status changed from reopened to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Actually the error message is quite clear to understand. The guest file system is irrelevant, take care of the host file system.

Well, i feal a little bit stupid... I was focused on the size of the file i tried to copy, but the probleme was the size of the virtual machine itself, like mentionned above... I moved my vdi on the ext3 partition and everything went well.

So now, i have some compatibility problems with some software, but this is another thing !

Thanks all of you for your explanations and patience !
