This is a need to increase the quota size for a user.

 

However under user defined quota , couldn't see that one, but under quota report can view it

 

White trying to edit the hard limit , getting this error

"Selected quota is an implicit quota and is not user defined, but a new quota can be created for this entry"

 

Can we go ahead a create a new quota for the user, will it override the existing data?

Yes, you can.

 

Explicit user quota overriding a default user quota:

To provide more space in volume vol1 to the user user1, then you run the following command (example):
::>volume quota policy rule create -vserver vs1 -policy-name quota_policy_vs1_1 -volume vol1 -type user -target user1 -disk-limit 80MB -qtree ""
