Copy a quota policy

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


This command copies a quota policy and the rules it contains. This command is not supported on Infinite Volumes. You must enter the following information to copy a quota policy:

  • Vserver name

  • Policy name

  • New policy name


-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver

This parameter specifies the Vserver from which you are copying the quota policy.

-policy-name <text> - Policy Name

This parameter specifies the name of the quota policy you are copying.

-new-policy-name <text> - New Policy Name

This parameter specifies the name of the new quota policy you are copying to. The new name cannot have more than 32 characters.


The following example copies a quota policy named quota_policy_0 on Vserver vs0. It is copied to quota_policy_1.

cluster1::> volume quota policy copy -vserver vs0 -policy-name quota_policy_0 -new-policy-name quota_policy_1
