Is it possible to assign quotas to AD groups for CIFS shares?
We have a FAS3270 and are in th process of migrating our file server over to it and I am having trouble figuring how to take and AD group and assign the users say 300mb limits for the share. Everything i have read leads me to believe it can be done but i have founding nothing showing how. The netapp is joined to AD and i can add users and groups to the shares. Just not the quotas.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

It is not possible with the "built-in" quota functionality, there are 3rd party tools to help with (but $$$)...
You can use a "workaround" by creating a qtree per share and then set the tree-quota to the limit you want.
Hope this helps.
