How To View Linux Folder Quota from WinXP
Posted on 2007-11-30
We are using Samba to map user home directories on Windows XP Pro desktops in a mixed server environment. When we do this the users see the size of the entire partition "230GB" instead of their quota space "400MB".
We're using the [homes] functionality for these directories as shown below:
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
read only = no
inherit acls = yes
dos filetimes = yes
veto files = /.bash*/Desktop/.kde*/.screenrc/
I read somewhere that this should be possible "if the
'configure' is done '--with-quotas'". The partition is configured as below:
/dev/sda10 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr,usrquota 1 2
Is there something simple we're missing to have this display correctly in the end user (Windows Explorer) interface? We've been using (and upgrading) these Samba shares for a long time (7+ years?) - are there configuration settings in Samba 3 that we just haven't looked at or used that we can access to make this all work better?
Any advice is appreciated!
