Cool Setting Quotas

Hi Mentors,

We have a server on which the users are authenticating through a windows AD environment , i have used winbind and smb for the same.

Actually, I am setting the quota for the users created in AD on /home directory of my server.

I am using setquota -u <username> 153600 179200 0 0 /home

now when i see quota using repquota -as , i am seeing the following,

#100027 -- 2280 150M 175M 130 0 0

Note: 10027 is the uid of the user on my server, I am confused about the pound symbol infront of the user and after all username is not shown.

Kindly Help.
