Thanks a lot everyone,

I got a lot of replies.

to check if largefiles are enabled:

/usr/lib/fs/vxfs/fsadm /u01

So that's good, I was on the right track.

unlike ufs, you can change this on the fly with fsadm like this:

/usr/lib/fs/vxfs/fsadm -o largefiles /u01

and just to clarify, /u01 is the filesystem in question, im just lazy...
