quota on Linux and/or Samba

Hello,

If you use a Linux-server (e.g. RedHat) with Samba as a file-server, and you want to implement QUOTA's.

On what level can you implement QUOTA's ?
- is it on SAMBA-level
- or is it on Linux level ?

Thanks,
Chris MARREEL

Re: quota on Linux and/or Samba

Quotas are done on the OS level. If you set a quota for a user of say 30 MB in his home directory and that dierctory is a samba share, it will be enforced at the OS prompt and the samba level.
