Unlikely. The data is being restored from a V5R4 system to an i 7.1

Frankly the message seems to be a bogie but the restore hasn't completed
yet either......

Doing multiple library restores to the iASP. In the joblog this message
shows up:
Message ID . . . : CPI3229
Date sent . . . : 01/10/13 Time sent . : 11:29:44

Message . . . . : The total length of the fields of the
file is greater than 3.5 gigabytes.

Cause . . . . . : Input or update is not allowed for a
record that has a total length greater than 3.5 gigabytes.

There are no objects listed that are not restored. There are no other
errors. We believe there are few if any files with record length over
1000 and NONE over 10,000 bytes so a 3.5GB record length is batshit
crazy insane.

Our friends Google and the archives ring hollow on this
error. Has anyone seen this? Honestly at this point I'm not sure there's
actually a problem!
