Hi fellow openvz users,

After searching around a while I don't seem to be seeing any light at 
the end of tunnel.

Is there a 2tb limit on the simfs filesystem?

I've tried increasing "DISKSPACE" in the relevant VPS conf and it skips 
that specific line upon "vzctl start $VEID".

Invalid value for DISKSPACE=2100000000:2200000000, skipped

If I lower it I can get to the point where I have 2.0TB available to me 
in my VPS. I haven't tweaked that value to see how much I can really get 
mainly because I actually want nearer 4TB in my VPS.

Any suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Currently I'm 
opting for using the HN for setting up this specific server as I then 
don't have the 2TB limit/restriction.
