How to solve the error: 452 Error writing file: A file cannot be larger than the value set by ulimit

When trying to transfer a very big file (over ftp for example), you'll receive the error above, this limit is a security limit in AIX and you can solve it by simply editing the /etc/security/limits file and increasing the "fsize" limit or simply changing it to "-1" to be unlimited, and then retry your transfer, you don't have to restart the machine for changes to take effect.
