Activating or deactivating quotas

You can use System Manager to activate or deactivate quotas on one or more selected volumes on your storage system, as your users and their storage requirements and limitations change.

  2. From the Quotas on SVM list, select the storage virtual machine (SVM) on which the quotas that you want to activate or deactivate reside.
  3. In the Quota Status on Volumes tab, select one or more volumes for which you want to activate or deactivate quotas.
  4. Click Activate or Deactivate, as required.
  5. If you are deactivating a quota, select the confirmation check box, and then click OK.
  6. Verify the quota status on the volumes in the Status column.
