VxFS Version 7 disk layout

VxFS disk layout Version 7 is similar to Version 6. The Version 7 disk layout can theoretically support files and file systems up to 8 exabytes (263). The maximum file system size that can be created is currently restricted to 235 blocks. For a file system to take advantage of greater than 1 terabyte support, it must be created on a Veritas Volume Manager volume. For 64-bit kernels, the maximum size of the file system you can create depends on the block size:

The Version 7 disk layout supports group quotas.

See About quota files on Veritas File System.

Some UNIX commands may not work correctly on file systems larger than one terabyte.
