10.3 Setting a Directory Quota with Novell NetStorage

Using Novell NetStorage, you can manage directory quotas for directories in an NSS volume from any computer with a supported web browser. This requires you to first configure a NetStorage server in the same context. For information, see the OES 11 SP2: NetStorage Administration Guide for Linux.

To create or modify NSS directory quotas with NetStorage:

  1. In a web browser, connect to NetStorage.

  2. Log in to NetStorage with the user name and password of the Admin user or equivalent user.

  3. Navigate to the directory you want to manage.

  4. Right-click the directory, then select Properties.

  5. Click the Novell Info tab.

  6. Do one of the following to configure the directory quota:

    • Space Restriction: Select Restrict Size, then specify the directory quota in KB. The value must be a multiple of 4.

    • No Space Restriction: Deselect Restrict Size to set the directory quota to Unlimited.

    • Complete Space Restriction: Select Restrict Size, then specify the directory quota as 0 KB. If the directory already contains files and subdirectories, the directory cannot grow beyond the current space consumed.

  7. Click Apply to accept the directory quota configuration.
