Quota Restrictions

The user is trying to appy quotas to all qtrees in all filers. However, according to the manual:

'Quotas are always disabled on a SnapMirror volume destination, regardless of whether quotas are enabled on the source volume. If you try to enable quotas on a volume destination, SnapMirror displays an error message. Quotas are not disabled on SnapMirror destination qtrees.'

The user doesn't need to break the snapmirrors but just want to set the destination qtree quotas so that they can get the qtree usage report. I have tested out this by using the lab equipments and there is no error when setting the qtree quotas in the snapmirror destination. I am wondering if I should enable it or not. And will there be any imapct? Any best practice?

Regards,

Terrence

Hi Terrence,

Here is a kb article that explains some scenarios that may cause a problem if they enable qtree quotas on the destination.
