Hi All,

 

I need to create about 5000 home directories. Whats the ebst way to do so?

I know i can create dynamic share names with %w, but can i dynamically create the necessary qtrees for each individual user?

Hi!

 

do you already have had quotas on 7mode Filer? I wrote a per script to migrate everything you need from old/etc/quotas file on 7mode NetApp.

Do you have list of users and desired quota size?

 

I don't now a method to create new Home Directories for new users dynamically. Does someone know this?

Hi,

 

no one qtree is enough. All user home directories are in this qtree. CISF shares are provided dynamically.

 

E.g. \\filer\username$

 

When you create a list of usernames and desired quotas, all scripts and settings can be generated from my perl script.
