Novell Storage Manager leverages the quota capabilities of Windows Server 2008.
IMPORTANT:Novell Storage Manager cannot manage quotas on home folders, collaborative storage folders, or auxiliary storage hosted on Windows Server 2003 machines.
For all Windows Server 2008 servers hosting home, collaborative, or auxiliary storage managed by Novell Storage Manager with quota management enabled, you must have the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) role installed. Additionally, if Windows Firewall is enabled, then you must set an exception rule on each server that permits remote FSRM management. FSRM management is needed because the NSM Engine is managing the quota remotely.
For more information, see Section A.1, Windows Firewall Requirements.
Setting an exception rule is different for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
