I have recently upgraded my two Novell 4.11 Servers so that each has approx 70gb of Hard Disk.  My next challenge is to apply User Disk Space Restrictions.  Other than the utility in Netware Admin does any know of any utility which will allow me to restrict departments and large groups of users.  I would be grateful for any stories or previous experiences from anyone else.

Cheers

Check N4Dspace.exe for your needs at:

There are others I don't remember now but will get if this is not what you need.

There is a NetWare utility named "uimport", which is used to create, update or delete users.
"uimport" needs a control- and a datafile (ascii). Within the paragraph "fields" in the controlfile there must be an entry named "Volume restrictions".
Each datarecord in the datafile must contain a corresponding entry (restriction in KB).

e.g. controlfile :
.
FIELDS
      Name
      Volume restrictions
      Volume restrictions

and data record:
"LOGNAME", ".SERVER1_SYS.Org:1000",".SERVER2_VOL1.Org:5000"

In the manuel "Reference/Utilities" you will find more informations about keywords and structures of the control- and data-file.

Unfortunately "uimport" does not accept real templates (supported in 4.11) and does not read volume restrictions from USER_TEMPLATE".
I hope, NetWare 5 will contain an update (which is overdue for a long while).

Hello MRussell!
I am curious as to why I was given a "D" for a grade after first rejecting it.  How did you get my post to show up with a new
date and time?  I didn't know that could be done.  I said in my
post to let me know if you wanted to know of others.
