    Server 2003 R2 Quotas

    Hi,

    I have just set a quota on the students home areas. I am using the Server 2003 R2 quota management.

    When a user clicks there home area the left hand pane shows the remaining storage on the server not the actual quota. Is it possible to show this?

    Thanks

    Not with any folder quotas, no.

    Thats because they are the owner based file system quotas, the FSRM users a new filter driver for it's quotas. That means that clients will only ever see ones created with the old system.

    It does using Samba/Linux as well.
    Maybe you would consider using Samba as a homedirectory server. There are a number of advantages to samba which I listed here:

    Monkeyx has written a brief howto for snapshotting volumes, and I added my setup documentation here:

    From memory I think it's to do with how you map your home directories.

    Code:
    \\SERVERNAME\USER$
    This should correctly display the quota.

    Code:
    \\SERVERNAME\PUBLIC\HOME\USER
    This won't display the quota correctly.

    Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 do a much better job at displaying quotas using either method. Just another XP blip I think.

    Yes and I would agree. Vista does do 'some' things better than XP, but it could easily be fixed with a patch for certain. Quotas are nothing new after all...
