    Hi Ronnysh,

    As per the error, you are exceeded OS file size limits. Can you check what is currently limit set at OS level with "ulimit -a" ? you can paste output here.
    if it's not enough then you can update it by changing limits in

    Hi Ronny,

    Looks like you could be hitting individual files size on filesystem/OS level. Can you please provide some more information like what OS and filesystem you are using? Is Innodb_file_per_table is ON? It could be also helpful if you can provide the output of "ls- alh" of your data dir. Thanks.
