Samba and Quota (Linux)

Hello all,

I do not like to say "oh, this happens to me too!", but I have exactly the
same behaviour Andreas Abach describes. 

Whenever a Windows client tries to
write a file that goes beyond his/her hard limit quota, the file seems to be
created with the correct size, but it gets truncated on the server's

I have also another situation here concerning quotas: every client maps its
home directory to a single server. But some users have their home dir on an
NFS mounted directory. Although a "quota -u login" reports his quota
correctly on the NFS server, Samba does report the whole NFS mounted file
system size and user space.

Thanks for your support,

Prof. Celso Kopp Webber
