Quotas enable you to restrict or track the disk space and number of files used by a user, group, or qtree. You can use the Add Quota wizard in System Manager to create a quota and apply it to a specific volume or qtree.
Using System Manager, the minimum value that you can specify for hard and soft limits on the number of files that the quota can own is one thousand. If you want to specify a value lower than one thousand, you should use the command-line interface (CLI).
You can use the local user name or RID to create user quotas. If you create the user quota or group quota using the user name or group name, then the /etc/passwd file and /etc/group file must be updated, respectively.
