Re: quota for specific users




You can use default quotas to apply a quota to all instances of a given quota type. For example, a default user quota affects all users on the system for the specified volume.


You use explicit quotas to specify a quota for a specific quota target, or to override a default quota for a specific target.

Hi @SagarDH


Its better to use system manager GUI for quotas.
