setquota -- Sets home directory quotas on the local computer. SYNOPSIS
setquota [-ahl] [-n directoryDomainName] [-u username] DESCRIPTION
setquota provides several options for creating and updating home directory quotas. Quotas are set as specified in the individual user record. OPTIONS
-a sets home directory quota for users defined in all directory domains of the server's search path. -l sets home directory quota for users defined in the local directory domain. -n directoryDomainName sets home directory quota for users defined in a specific directory domain in the server's search path. -u username sets home directory quota for a specific user defined in the domain(s) identified in the -a, -l, or -n parameter. If you omit the -a, -l, and -n parameters when you use the -u parameter, -a is assumed. FILES

setquota - set disk quotas SYNOPSIS
setquota [ -rm ] [ -u | -g ] [ -F quotaformat ] name block-softlimit block-hardlimit inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit -a | filesystem... setquota [ -rm ] [ -u | -g ] [ -F quotaformat ] [ -p protoname ] name -a | filesystem... setquota -b [ -rm ] [ -u | -g ] [ -F quotaformat ] -a | filesystem... setquota -t [ -u | -g ] [ -F quotaformat ] block-grace inode-grace -a | filesystem... setquota -T [ -u | -g ] [ -F quotaformat ] name block-grace inode-grace -a | filesystem... DESCRIPTION
setquota is a command line quota editor. The filesystem, user/group name and new quotas for this filesystem can be specified on the com- mand line. Note that if a number is given in the place of a user/group name it is treated as an UID/GID. -r, --remote Edit also remote quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server to set quota. This option is available only if quota tools were compiled with enabled support for setting quotas over RPC. -m, --no-mixed-pathnames Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without leading slash in the path. rpc.rquotad uses this to recognize NFSv4 mounts and properly prepend pseudoroot of NFS filesystem to the path. If you specify this option, setquota will always send paths with a leading slash. This can be useful for legacy reasons but be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if you are using new rpc.rquotad. -F, --format=quotaformat Perform setting for specified format (ie. don't perform format autodetection). Possible format names are: vfsold Original quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs, vfsv0 Quota format with 32-bit UIDs / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits and usage, rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem) -u, --user Set user quotas for named user. This is the default. -g, --group Set group quotas for named group. -p, --prototype=protoname Use quota settings of user or group protoname to set the quota for the named user or group. --always-resolve Always try to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if the name is composed of digits only. -b, --batch Read information to set from stdin (input format is name block-softlimit block-hardlimit inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit ). Empty lines and lines starting with # are ignored. -c, --continue-batch If parsing of an input line in batch mode fails, continue with processing the next line. -t, --edit-period Set grace times for users/groups. Times block-grace and inode-grace are specified in seconds. -T, --edit-times Alter times for individual user/group when softlimit is enforced. Times block-grace and inode-grace are specified in seconds or can be string 'unset'. -a, --all Go through all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform setting. To disable a quota, set the corresponding parameter to 0. To change quotas for several filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem. Only the super-user may edit quotas. FILES
