| "Kontingentverwaltung" (quota administration). With samba 3.0.6 or 3.0.7
| this tab is missing. Is this a general problem or only with the
| debian-package ?
| Debug level "6 quota:11" gives me the appended messages. As far as I can
| see the first difference apart from line-numbers is in "got message type
| 0x0 of len 0x64" from process.c:process_smb. Does it mean the client

| smbcquotas -vv  //server/share  -F -U Administrator
| gives me after asking for my pasword:
| Failed to open \$Extend/$Quota:$Q:$INDEX_ALLOCATION
| what (kind of) object is samba looking for ?
Hi Ingo,

This is a virtuell file (pipe) for the quota administration.

1.) I know what the problem is with smbcquotas and it will be fixed soon in svn and in the next release,
2.) the problem why the win client -> samba server quota administration don't work, is a bigger
~    problem
~    could you take ethereal capture of this working and not working and send it to me?
