Ceph: Unable to rename large S3 object.

Solution Verified - Updated -


Unable to rename large S3 object. The following was reported to Red Hat after an application was failing to rename S3 objects.

After an upgraded from RHCS 4.3 to RHCS 5.3 we are unable to rename large object files.

  • For AWS CLI: Only objects less than 8 MiB can be renamed
  • For s3cmd: Only objects less than 1 GiB can be renamed

It was determined that the issue occurs when Assumed Roles are in use.
