i appreciate your help.
i've had some sucess - which only raises more questions.
we have no windows clients, so we're using unix security. i have been able to create & apply user quotas - is there a reason i can only use the uid & not a userid? i also notice a line or record for each user quota created in the gui under quotas - those lines / records are only indicating that a quota has been created & or applied for that account, correct?
if i applied an all user rule - using the "" target - i'm guessing i would only see one such line / record. i'm also guessing the "" - all-user rule would apply to root as well.
can a generic "" rule be applied along with more specific rules for different accounts? for example, the "" rule would have a hard limit of 1 tb - but we might have some users that need 2 tb, and root would need even more - is there a way to manage this situation? is it wise - or is there a reason to have user quotas & group quotas?
i only applied hard limits, now i need to work on the soft limits.
thanks again, and if i'm missing / forgetting anything - any help would be appreciated....
also, for now i'm not using qtrees - do i really need them?
