I have a RS/6000 with AIX 4.3.1 and Oracle 8.0.5.
The Oracle's database is big (> 8 GB.)
When I execute:

exp / full=yes file=/dumpbd/PRUEBAS.backup log=/dumpbd/PRUEBAS.log

and after ten minutes, I get the next error:

EXP-00002: Error to write file of exp
Error system  27

The file have 2GBytes .
The user what execute the exp have permissions to make file > 2GB, and
the file system ' Large File Enabled Journaled File System', this is, is
possible make
file big.

What is the problem?
Any help is appreciated.

afaik, exp does not support large files - it's somewhere in the AIX documenation ( I think, [Quoted]
don't have it here at hand). You'll have to split your export.
