A directory quota limits the amount of space on a Novell Storage Services (NSS) volume that can be consumed by all of the files and folders in that directory. If the value you specify exceeds the volume quota, the volume quota overrides the directory quota. If the current size of the directory exceeds the specified limit, users cannot save data to the directory until space is cleared by removing files from the directory.
Before you can set directory quotas, you must enable the volume’s Directory Quotas attribute. As the administrator user, you can view and configure directory quotas with the Files and Folders plug-in for iManager, NetStorage, and the Novell Client.
This section discusses how to configure directory quotas for folders on NSS volumes.
