I have a unzip task that is attempting to decompress three files. One of the files is 242MB compressed and contains only 1 file. When decompressed the single output file is 3.9GB. The Unzip task is throwing the error below. Anyone familiar with the ulimit setting that is referenced?

ERROR [9001 - Flag Job as Error] [8098 - Unzip Files] System error: A file cannot be larger than the value set by ulimit. com.linoma.dpa.runtime.JobFailedException

We do not put limits on this value.

Check with your network administrator to validate that your account is not restricted to a particular file size while executing. If this is a Non-Root user that is starting GAMFT, then this would be the account that needs to be unlimited or, within limits assigned to that Non-Root user.
