Hi Everybody,

As far as I can see nobody answered my question.

Is there anobody who has an idea how to solve this problem? Or do I need to
send my question to a different samba mailinglist and not to
samba at lists.samba.org?

Thank you very much,

Bart Hendrix

Subject: [Samba] Samba + Share Quota's

Hi Samba users.

I have the following problem and I hope somebody can help me:

I installed Samba on a White Box linux machine and used LDAP for
I created a directory /work/shares. In /work/shares are all share
directories created.

The problem I'm having now is that the total capacity of each share is the
same because they are on the same partition.
(So /work/shares/test and /work/shares/software both used 80 GB from a total
of 120 GB free space, but /test used 20 GB and /software 60 GB)

Is it possible to configure the free space size with smbcquota's?

I tried this but I couldn't configure it because I dont know the values of
soft/hard limit. (smbcquotas //fileserver/test -S

Is smbcquota's the right program or is there a different solution?

Thank you very much
