Quota Management with Openfiler SAN

openFilerQuotas are allocated on a per-user or per-group basis and are applied to volume slices.  Log on to your Openfiler SAN Management console to get started.


Quota requirements

You will need to have setup Volumes with either XFS or EXT3 filesystems (you cannot apply quotas to iSCSI volumes).

You also need groups to apply quotas for.  If you join your SAN to an Active Directory domain you will be able to use groups from your domain.

  1. Select the Quota tab.
  2. In the Select Volume section, choose the volume that you want to apply quotas to and click Change.

  2. Batch process group quotas.
