The problem is: by creating a new file, as a normal user, as soon as the file reach 2GB, the file-creating process stops and the message: "File size limit exceeded" appear.

If I directly connect to the system by root (via ssh) and switch to the normal user by using "su - username" all works fine.

My system is: OpenVZ 2.6.24
The VSP runs under SUSE Linux 7.0, 2.6.24-8-pve #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Oct 16 11:17:55 CEST 2009 i686 unknown

I already checked some things, without sucess:
The limitations shown by "ulimit -a" are identical for both users:
file size (blocks) unlimited

Also the environment settings ("set", "env") are identical.

Creating a new user with the same group assignments like root or the normal user leads to the same result (file limitation at 2GB).

Trying to load the same "profiles" while login like root was also not the solution.

Is there any possibility to enlarge/deactivate this limitation for normal users?
