Did the dump come from those machines? If so, it is probably not a valid
archive anyway because you hit the 2gig limit. My suggestion would be to
recompile PostgreSQL with the 64bit file access.

Hi All:

I am trying to restore a database on a different machine (7.2.3 on Sol9 to 7.2.4 RH8), and i get the following error, that i haven't seen before:

-bash-2.05b$ pg_restore -d access -Ft -a access.dump.tar
pg_restore: [tar archiver] could not open TOC file for input: File too large
Segmentation fault

-bash-2.05b$ ls -l
total 2339148
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2323785216 Nov 23 22:43 access.dump.tar

The problem is that your file is over 2 GB, your OS/libc has a problem opening such big files (using fopen()).

Try cat access.dump.tar | pg_restore -d access -Ft -a

I read somewhere that there's a patch for this:

Will this patch fix it? Where do i get it from and how do i apply it?

The patch only fixed that "segmentation fault", not the "File too large".
