Description

System Administration tools                               VFS_DEFAULT_QUOTA(8)



NAME
       vfs_default_quota - store default quota records for Windows clients

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = default_quota

DESCRIPTION
       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       Many common quota implementations only store quotas for users and
       groups, but do not store a default quota. The vfs_default_quota module
       allows Samba to store default quota values which can be examined using
       the Windows Explorer interface.

       By default, Samba returns NO_LIMIT the default quota and refuses to
       update them.  vfs_default_quota maps the default quota to the quota
       record of a user. By default the root user is taken because quota
       limits for root are typically not enforced.

       This module is stackable.

OPTIONS
       default_quota:uid = UID
           UID specifies the user ID of the quota record where the default
           user quota values are stored.

       default_quota:gid = GID
           GID specifies the group ID of the quota record where the default
           group quota values are stored.

       default_quota:uid nolimit = BOOL
           If this parameter is True, then the user whose quota record is
           storing the default user quota will be reported as having a quota
           of NO_LIMIT. Otherwise, the stored values will be reported.

       default_quota:gid nolimit = BOOL
           If this parameter is True, then the group whose quota record is
           storing the default group quota will be reported as having a quota
           of NO_LIMIT. Otherwise, the stored values will be reported.

EXAMPLES
       Store the default quota record in the quota record for the user with ID
       65535 and report that user as having no quota limits:

                   [global]
                vfs objects = default_quota
                default_quota:uid = 65535
                default_quota:uid nolimit = yes
