Here's a quote from another recent thread:
A volume has a file size limit of X in OpenAFS 1.3 (2GB in 1.2), and a 
volume size limit of Y.  But also remember the AFS volumes are stored 
within a filesystem on the file server and that has its own limits 
depending on the version of the OS you're running.

So what are the theoretical and known working values of X and Y?

X would be the biggest 64 Bits number on Linux and AIX (AFAIK) 2GB on 
the rest of them.
Y can be anything up to your partition size as long as you didn't set 
volume quotas. ;-)
partition size is limited by your OS.

So, basically you're right.
