You can have volumes larger than 2TB with 1.4 fileservers (maybe not
1.4.5, though). I didn't think the 1.6 series changed anything with
volume size or quota limitations.

It's certainly not related to what your dbservers are running. This is a
bug, probably issue 131505, probably fixed by
<http://gerrit.openafs.org/#change,9499>. If you are in a position to
try a patch on a "testing" fileserver and see if that fixes it, try
applying the patch in that gerrit submission, which is here:

If you're not in a position to be applying patches, I (or someone)
should be able to reproduce that and try it ourselves. I assumed that
patch will be going in 1.6.3.
