Unable to create tree quota with comma in name

I am trying to set up some tree quotas on a brand new filesystem. I want to name these /Groups/<last name>, <first name>. For example: /Groups/Smith, Dave.

In Unisphere, every time I create a new tree quota with a comma in the name I get the following listed in the properties:

Hard Limit:nullMB( - % used)

Soft Limit: nullMB( - % used)

I am not able to change the hard and soft limits to real numbers.

If I use the CLI, the quota tree creates successfully but I get the following when I try to change properties:

$ nas_quotas -edit -tree -fs <fsname> -block 307200:302080 "/Groups/Smith, Dave"

done

Warning 17716809847: server_2: Naming Service Error:  UID= /Groups/Smith, Dave

Is it really the case that I cannot create quota trees with commas in the name?!

Re: Unable to create tree quota with comma in name

You’re using the nas_quotas command wrong – that last argument is the treequota ID and not the path

Like this

# nas_quotas -edit -tree -fs ws_test1 -block 307200:302080 1

Done

# nas_quotas -list -tree -fs ws_test1

Thanks, Rainer. The command you gave does work. After I ran it, I still get the following error message in Unisphere:

If it bothers you then please go the regular route and open a service request

Re: Unable to create tree quota with comma in name

So Unisphere is broken in regard to tree quote configuration. I'm surprised there aren't more posts about it in the forum!

The only thing that bothers me is that EMC relies on its customers raising service requests in order to fix problems.

Re: Unable to create tree quota with comma in name

Maybe you are the only one who is using commas in treequota names and is using the GUI to do so

I would suggest to take into account that this forum here is a user community – its not EMC support.

Most EMC people answering here do so besides their normal job in their spare time or evenings.

Service requests or chat are the regular way of interfacing with support.
