We just upgraded to cDOT 8.2.1p2 from 7-mode 8.1. There are, as expected, a few hiccups. One of the user-facing ones is this response when users run the 'quota' command on any of our Linux clients (we're an all-NFSv3 environment):
quota: error while getting quota from $filer:/vol/home/0 for $user (id $id): Connection refused
I can tell that the daemon is running on the svm from both the client and filer sides:
$rpcinfo -p $filer
program vers proto port service
100011 1 udp 4049 rquotad
::> network connections listening show -node $node1
Vserver Name Interface Name:Local Port Protocol/Service
I am a client user and I wonder if it is not possible to get my quota report by simple Linux tool like quota.
The network admin says that it is not possible for client to get quota report. Only on filer itself the report could be generated by the admin.
If I try df . I get sometimes a correct report and sometimes only trash report. In a different thread it was mentioned that df is not suitable for netapp.
“As far as I know (and I could be wrong), df in Unix has never reflected user quotas, it always shows the size of the file system. This is the same whether the file system is local or over NFS. A qtree quota is different because it makes the OS think that the "disk" has a restricted size. The "quota" command, however, should display the quota size and usage for a given user.”
No I tried the quota command on my terminal.
I get the same error message as mentioned in the thread above.
Could the admin setup the netapp filer in the way that my quota request is not refused?
