Re: Files Doubt

Hi,

if you have 4.0G look in chapter 7 of the system administration documentation:
http://h30097.www3.hp.com/docs/pub_page/V40G_DOCS/ADM_DOCS.HTM

if not start looking for your os release and then into system administration documentation:

Re: Files Doubt

Bruno,
You have to mount the file systems with the quotas enables, you have to specify this line for every mount point in the /etc/fstab
domain_y01#y01 /y01 advfs rw,userquota,groupquota 0 2

and then mount the domains to the system. now you have enabled them.
On how to set them and give quotas to users or groups, you have to read the man pages for the quota, edquota, quotacheck, quotaon and quotaoff

man edquota gives information to set the quota for certain users or groups of users.
