6.4 Setting Directory Quotas on NSS Volumes and Directories

You can use NetStorage to create or change directory quotas on NSS volumes and directories for both NetWare and Linux. See Managing Space Quotas for Volumes, Directories, and Users in the OES 2 SP3: NSS File System Administration Guide for Linux. You must be a user with rights equivalent to the Admin user to create or change directory quotas.

  1. Start your browser and specify the URL for NetStorage.

    The URL is http://server_ip_address/oneNet/NetStorage/. Replace server_ip_address with the IP address or DNS name of the server running NetStorage or the IP address for Apache-based services. If Apache-based services use a port other than 80, you must also specify that port number with the URL.

    For example, if the IP address for NetStorage is, then you would specify

    In the above example, if you had changed the port number to 51080, then you would specify

    Although the oneNet portion of the URL is required if you are using WebDAV (Web Folders), it is not required if using a browser. In a browser, you can just use

    The date and time on the workstation being used to access NetStorage should be within a few hours of the date and time on the server running NetStorage to avoid conflicts.

  2. Enter your username and password.

    NetStorage uses your Novell eDirectory username and password, so you don’t need to remember or use a separate username or password.

  3. Right-click the directory or file you want to create or change a directory quota for and select Properties.

  4. Click the NetWare Info tab, then click the Restrict size check box.

  5. Specify the directory size limit and click Apply to save your changes.
