Recently I've enabled soft quotas for all users on a particular VNX file system containing their Home drives. When the quota is exceeded an alert is generated in the VNX's log which reads something like this (pay attention to the "Message" line, particularly the underlined uid):
System: (the system name)
Created: the date and time
Message: Slot 3: Block soft quota crossed (fs /root_vdm_2/AMHOME_DM3, uid 37423
Full Description: Block soft quota limit has been crossed for a specified user, gourp or tree ID in the error message
The problem is the uid does notidentify the user by logon name. There may be close to 1000 people with home directories in this share.
How is it possible to match the uid with a logon name?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Make sure you understand that not in all cases the mappings would come from usermapper
Also don’t overload the control stations by doing a usermapper export every time you need to resolve a UID
