How you link UNIX and Windows names for quotas

Contributors

In a mixed environment, users can log in as either Windows users or UNIX users. You can configure quotas to recognize that a user’s UNIX id and Windows ID represent the same user.

Quotas for Windows user name are mapped to a UNIX user name, or vice versa, when both of the following conditions are met:

  • The user-mapping parameter is set to "on" in the quota rule for the user.

  • The user names have been mapped with the vserver name-mapping commands.

When a UNIX and Windows name are mapped together, they are treated as the same person for determining quota usage.
