Adding a disk quota to all samba users on LDAP


***SOLVED***
It appears that you are still able to apply quotas to LDAP users even through they do not appear as native linux users. Just apply the quota to the LDAP users username.





Hi

Current Situation
  • I have all users setup using SAMBA and LDAP.
  • All users are in the LDAP tree.
  • Each user has an linux home drive.
  • None of the users has an native linux account because they are authenticated via LDAP

What I want

I want to give each of these users a quota of 128M. I cannot use the edquota -u command because there a no native users (They are in LDAP). I can use the edquota -g command on the "Domain Users" group but that means one user would be able to use up all the disk space.

What are my options here?

You can give them quotas on the file server you are using for their home directories, the only problem will be that they won't see any error messages.

Hi

I don't really understand what you mean or how I can acheive what you are saying. I don't care if they don't get any error messages, that is secondary right now. Each user has a home directory in /home/username.

The filesystem that quotas are enabled is / (root). I only have one partition.

Thanks

Hi

I have already completed all those instructions. The problem is not setting up Quota rather that my users authenticate via an LDAP server. My question is how am I able to apply quotas to users authenticated via LDAP. Currently my ubuntu machine is set up as a Samba domain controller, each user authenticates to the domain and their home drive is mapped in Windows XP. Currently the users do not have quotas - I want to apply quotas to all LDAP users individually (100MB for each user).
