User quota for a Windows group in AD

Hello, Is it possible to create a 'user' quota rule for a Windows group? I mean; I have two AD groups; nas5gb, nas10gb. I want to create a quota rule for the members of this groups; if a user is a member of 'nas5gb', its quota is 5gb or if a user is a member of 'nas10gb', its quota is 10gb. I have created a user quota and added 'mydomain\nas5gb', but it did not work. Do I need to add all users list into the quota rule?

Re: User quota for a Windows group in AD

Hi,

One possible method could be to use Windows Group Policy to specify and map the CIFS shares provided by the Netapp, and implement the 5/10GB limit per group/user. If the user is a member of one AD group, one policy is applied, another group, another policy is applied ?

We use GP to implement limits on Users my documents, which is a CIFS share from one appliance.
