Although resizing quotas is faster, you must do a full quota reinitialization if you make certain small or extensive changes to your quotas.
A full quota reinitialization is necessary in the following circumstances:
- You create a quota for a target that has not previously had a quota.
- You change user mapping (with the vserver name-mapping commands) of users that are targets of quota rules where the user-mapping parameter is enabled.
- You change the security style of a qtree from UNIX to either mixed or NTFS.
- You change the security style of a qtree from mixed or NTFS to UNIX.
- You remove users from a quota target with multiple users, or add users to a target that already has multiple users.
- You make extensive changes to your quotas.
Example of quotas changes that require initialization
Suppose you have a volume that contains three qtrees and the only quotas in the volume are three tree quotas. You decide to make the
- Add a new qtree and create a new tree quota for
- Add a default user quota for the
Both of these changes require a full quota
initialization. Resizing does not make the quotas
