How to restrict users from creating large files on a filesystem.

I have 1 TB filesystem and I want to add maximum file size limit of 100 GB to that filesystems. Can I do it using disk quota or is there any other way.

My OS is 11iv2.

Thanks In advance.

Shalom,

You have posted originally to the Linux forum.

I will after I post this request a move to HP-UX.

Quota is how you limit user data on any Unix.

Cookbooks by HP.

I just asked HP to move it.

Let us know how the quotas thing works out.
