It was actually quite easy:

- Shut down your app servers and database.

- Start PROENV

- Change the current directory to the location of your database

- PROUTIL mfgsys -C EnableLargeFiles

- Restart your database and app servers.

(While the database is down, you may want to truncate your before-image file
too...)

This really should be the default setting for new databases. There doesn't
seem to be any reason against enabling large files that I can see and it
protects against an untimely shutdown.

Is there something magical one has to do to have a Progress Database greater
than 2GB? We're on Windows 2003 Server Standard.

Thanks,

Yes, I'm afraid you will have to call Support to get the procedure. It
has been way to many moons as my db is 15 GB.
