User quota rule problem


I have a cifs vserver acting as a file server in an active directory domain. I set up a volume, a qtree and a share and created a policy rule for a user quota on that qtree.

I used the command: 'volume quota policy rule create ...-volume <my volume>  -type user -target "" -qtree <my qtree>'

When I run 'volume quota policy rule show' on that volume, I do see a user quota on that qtree.

When I run 'volume quota show ...-volume <my volume>' I receive the error 'skipping new definition for * (type:user target:* qtree:<my qtree>  volume:<my volume>). Volume <my volume> has no valid quota rules in quota policy default'

And when I check with an AD user that has his homedir on the share that is configured on that qtree, there's no size limit for the homedir.

Can't figure out what I missed.

Might be good to try and toggle on and off the quotas for the volume as sometimes they won't take effect and initialize properly until then, see below.

Re: User quota rule problem


Thanks you so much. It worked.

I did turn it on initially, but only after toggling it off-on, it kicked-in.
