I have a single filesystem of 400 GB , my requirement is to create 2 shares say share A and share B, with share A of size 350 GB and share B of size 50 GB .. how can i apply quota on share level ??
i have already created the filesystem and 2 shares on it , just finding way to apply this Hard quota so one share (share A) doesnt steal space from other share (share B) if say share A runs out of space which would be 350GB..
Here is my FS and the shares on it , VDM name VDM_KNTNAS458 server_export VDM_KNTNAS458 -P cifs -l -all VDM_KNTNAS458 : share "fs_KNTNAS458$" "/fs_KNTNAS458" umask=022 maxusr=4294967295 netbios=SVAAKNTNAS458 share "CitrixIM" "/fs_KNTNAS458/CitrixIM" umask=022 maxusr=4294967295 netbios=SVAAKNTNAS458 share "CitrixProfiles" "/fs_KNTNAS458/CitrixProfiles" umask=022 maxusr=4294967295 netbios=SVAAKNTNAS458 ..
I want , CitrixIM of 50 GB hard qouta CitrixProfiles of 350 GB
Can you tell me how do i apply the quota and verify if the quota is applied correctly ..
Here is the error when i tried to apply Tree quota from GUI.. by specifying the path as /fs_KNTNAS458/CitrixIM for CitrixIM share .. i dont have any data on this share yet..
I think your Problem is that you are entering the path wrong - it has to be relative to the file system
so just select the VDM when you specify which data mover to create the treequota on, then the fs and then enter /CitrixIM in the Path box
see attached picture
what the Celerra Manager actually does can be seen in /nas/log/cmd_log: 2009-11-09 12:33:31.011 db:201:17500:S: nas_quotas -tree -on -fs id=287 -path /CitrixIM 2009-11-09 12:33:32.590 db:201:17500:S: nas_quotas -tree -edit -fs id=287 -block 10240:NoLimit -inode NoLimit:NoLimit -comment 1
Right , after deleting the share thru GUI , directory was still present on the FS , which was deleted by accessing C$ and by my wintel admin ... post which i was able to create the directory with hard quota on it ..
Now whatever i created is a directory CitrixIM (50 GB tree quota) on Filesystem with tree quota enabled on it , how do i create a share now ..as i dont want users to access the filesystem and then the directory which might give them access to entire filesystem , i want to present this as a share , for ex:
//<CIFSSERVER>/CitrixIM ... and not as directory on filesystem for ex
//<CIFSSERVER>/<FS_name>/CitrixIM .. hope i am not confusing ..
Pls ignore my negligence , as ia am a newbee to celerra.. just trying to understand how quota works ,,
- go into Celerra Manager again and just create the share
- since you had already done it you can also just fetch the line from the log like "grep server_export /nas/log/cmd_log | grep Citrix" and execute it again
- or ask your Windows admin - he can just use the Windows MMC - add the normal Manage Shares plugin, connect to the Celerra CIFS server and browse through it to the directory. This way he could create the share with exactly the name and permissions that he wants to
