vfs_default_quota(8) [osx man page]


vfs_default_quota - store default quota records for Windows clients SYNOPSIS
vfs objects = default_quota DESCRIPTION
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite. Many common quota implementations only store quotas for users and groups, but do not store a default quota. The vfs_default_quota module allows Samba to store default quota values which can be examined using the Windows Explorer interface. By default, Samba returns NO_LIMIT the default quota and refuses to update them. vfs_default_quota maps the default quota to the quota record of a user. By default the root user is taken because quota limits for root are typically not enforced. This module is stackable. OPTIONS
default_quota:uid = UID UID specifies the user ID of the quota record where the default user quota values are stored. default_quota:gid = GID GID specifies the group ID of the quota record where the default group quota values are stored. default_quota:uid nolimit = BOOL If this parameter is True, then the user whose quota record is storing the default user quota will be reported as having a quota of NO_LIMIT. Otherwise, the stored values will be reported. default_quota:gid nolimit = BOOL If this parameter is True, then the group whose quota record is storing the default group quota will be reported as having a quota of NO_LIMIT. Otherwise, the stored values will be reported. EXAMPLES
Store the default quota record in the quota record for the user with ID 65535 and report that user as having no quota limits: [global] vfs objects = default_quota default_quota:uid = 65535 default_quota:uid nolimit = yes VERSION
This man page is correct for version 3.0.25 of the Samba suite. AUTHOR
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed. VFS_DEFAULT_QUOTA(8)

quota -- display disk usage and limits SYNOPSIS
quota [-ghu] [-v | -q] quota [-hu] [-v | -q] user quota [-gh] [-v | -q] group quota -d [-gh] [-v | -q] DESCRIPTION
quota displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the user quotas are printed. Options: -d Query the kernel for default user or group quota instead of a specific user or group. -g Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member. The optional -u flag is equivalent to the default. -h Numbers are displayed in a human readable format. -q Print a more terse message, containing only information on file systems where usage is over quota. -v quota will display quotas on file systems where no storage is allocated. Specifying both -g and -u displays both the user quotas and the group quotas (for the user). Only the super-user may use the -u flag and the optional user argument to view the limits of other users. Non-super-users can use the -g flag and optional group argument to view only the limits of groups of which they are members. Only the super-user may use the -d flag. The -q flag takes precedence over the -v flag. quota tries to report the quotas of all mounted file systems. If the file system is mounted via NFS it will attempt to contact the rpc.rquotad(8) daemon on the NFS server. If quota exits with a non-zero status, one or more file systems are over quota. SEE ALSO
