    Disk quota problem

    Where the hell am I going wrong!!

    I am setting up new servers to run our new wizzy network and I have got to disk quotas. I have set the disk quota limit in disk management on the storage server partition to 150Mb. (this had previously been set to 50Mb for testing purposes) and I have set disk quotas in our year 11 group policy to 150Mb. When I add data to a home directory it stops at 50Mb? Is there anything I am missing? Is it the previous setting to 50Mb on the partition?

    This is doing my head in :x

    Re: Disk quota problem

    Is this the R2 quota software (FSRM) or the standard 2003 server disk quota software?

    It's been a while since i used it but don't you have to manually select all previously created entries and change them, i think the global setting only affects new entries.

    Also remember that the standard disk quotas work on file ownership per voluma so it can produce odd results sometimes.
