actually I have ie \dir\docs\user1 \dir\docs\user2 etc etc till \dir\docs\userN.
fo rmy understanding if I would like to preserve the "per folder" quota restrictions, I will create a qtree like /dir/docs with quota policy applied. after that I will create on the /etc/symlink.translations an entry like
Map /dir/docs/user1/* /docs/user1/*
And I'll be able to apply quota policies at /docs/user1/*? Am I correct?
Yes sorry Marco, you can easily achieve that by using the wildcard in the quota setting. I got the impression you were looking to have deeper sublevels of specific quota's which would be a little harder to achieve. If you are just looking at doing this on a global level with wildcards, this should be easy to achieve with the standard layout and quotas and without doing anything too complex with the data layout.
