How you specify a Windows domain using the QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN directive

Using the QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN directive in the quotas file enables you to specify the domain name only once for a group of Windows users.

The QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN directive takes an optional argument. This string, followed by a backslash (\), is prefixed to the name specified in the quota entry. Data ONTAP stops adding the domain name when it reaches the end of the quotas file or another QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN directive.

Example

The following example illustrates the use of the QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN directive:
QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN corp
roberts    user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 
smith      user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 
QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN engineering
daly       user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 
thomas     user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 
QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN
stevens    user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 

The string corp\ is added as a prefix to the user names of the first two entries. The string engineering\ is added as a prefix to the user names of the third and fourth entries. The last entry is unaffected by the QUOTA_TARGET_DOMAIN entry because the entry contains no argument.

The following entries produce the same effects:
corp\roberts       user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 
corp\smith         user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K 
engineering\daly   user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K
engineering\thomas user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K
stevens            user@/vol/vol2         900M      30K
