This tool is part of the Samba(7) suite.
The smbcquotas program manipulates NT Quotas on SMB file shares.
The following options are available to the smbcquotas program.
-u user ” Specifies the user of whom the quotas are get or set. By default the current user's username will be used.
-L ” Lists all quota records of the share.
-F ” Show the share quota status and default limits.
-S QUOTA_SET_COMMAND ” This command sets/modifies quotas for a user or on the share, depending on the QUOTA_SET_COMMAND parameter which is described later.
-n ” This option displays all QUOTA information in numeric format. The default is to convert SIDs to names and QUOTA limits to a readable string format.
-t ” Don't actually do anything, only validate the correctness of the arguments.
-v ” Be verbose.
-h “help ” Print a summary of command line options.
-V ” Prints the program version number.
-s <configuration file> ” The file specified contains the configuration details required by the server. The information in this file includes server-specific information such as what printcap file to use, as well as descriptions of all the services that the server is to provide. See smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name is determined at compile time.
-d “debug=debuglevel ” debuglevel is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is not specified is zero.
-l “logfile=logbasename ” File name for log/debug files. The extension ".client" will be appended. The log file is never removed by the client.
-N ” If specified, this parameter suppresses the normal password prompt from the client to the user. This is useful when accessing a service that does not require a password.
-k ” Try to authenticate with kerberos. Only useful in an Active Directory environment.
-A “authfile=filename ” This option allows you to specify a file from which to read the username and password used in the connection. The format of the file is
username = <value> password = <value> domain = <value>
-U “user=username[%password ”] Sets the SMB username or username and password.
The format of an ACL is one or more ACL entries separated by either commas or newlines. An ACL entry is one of the following:
for setting user quotas for the user specified by -u or the current username:
for setting the default quotas for a share:
for changing the share quota settings:
The smbcquotas program sets the exit status depending on the success or otherwise of the operations performed. The exit status may be one of the following values.
If the operation succeeded, smbcquotas returns an exit status of 0. If smbcquotas couldn't connect to the specified server, or when there was an error getting or setting the quota(s), an exit status of 1 is returned. If there was an error parsing any command line arguments, an exit status of 2 is returned.
