You are trying to perform a Data Pump export (exdp) and when attempting to perform a data pump export the following errors occur:
ORA-27039: create file failed, file size limit reached
Additional information: 4
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SYS_ERROR", line 105
ORA-06512: at "SYS.KUPW$WORKER", line 9721
You have verified that the oracle user does have the file size set to unlimited:
$ ulimit -a core file size (blocks, -c) 0 data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited scheduling priority (-e) 0 file size (blocks, -f) unlimited pending signals (-i) 7983 max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 32 max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited open files (-n) 4096 pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8 POSIX message queues (bytes, -q) 819200 real-time priority (-r) 0 stack size (kbytes, -s) 32768 cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited max user processes (-u) 2047 virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited file locks (-x) unlimited
And confirmed that you can create a file to the directory location executing the 'dd' command as the oracle user
This completed creating a 4G file.
