Server :: Setting Disk Quota For Bulk Users?

Jun 10, 2009

In our organization there are around 1000+ users are using mails. The mailing system is implemented under RHEL using postfix and dovecot. For user based quotas i have implemented Disk Quota. But the problem when i want to edit quota for multiple users with similar limits i'm doing "edquota user" for every users. It seems very difficult. Now I wanna know:

1. Is there any way to edit quota value for multiple users at a single shot?

2. Also there is any method to send alerts mail to the end users on disk utilization?

Jan 18, 2011

Is there a way to remove users in bulk? Maybe by a range of user id numbers.

I help run a school server for our Linux class. I create temp accounts for tests and now I just want to delete them. I really should delete the old users too but the Professor likes to let them have access even after the class.

CentOS 5 Server :: Default Quota Setting When Create User?

Nov 1, 2010

Running a server using CentOS 5.5 (yum updated, x86_64), found that when using /usr/sbin/useradd to create system user, the quota for the user will default set to 5M soft and 10M hard (on /var/spool/mail partition). As remember the default setting for user quota should be both zero when create a new user.

man useradd and quota related command and no help, had any idea how to change/set the default quota when create user.

CentOS 5 Server :: Setting Quota Limit In Samba 'homes' Share?

May 20, 2010

I'm trying to set up quota limit in samba-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1 in CentOS 5.5, by means of the module vfs objects. In the samba howto [1] I found a very brief explanation, but it isn't working for me. The basic idea is to setup a user called 'quota2g' (uid 499) and setup the [homes] share, as it comes by default, to enforce the quota on each user share.quota2g:x:499:499:User quota 2GB:/home/quota2g:/bin/bash

Server :: How To Create Disk Space Quota

May 26, 2010

What is the best way to create a hard (OS) quota on disk space folders? Basically in web root folder /var/www/lighttpd I have a folder called domains. I want to set a quota on each domain folder. The quota sizes will vary per folder. Is there a way to do this without creating a user for every domain? Currently every folder is owned by the lighttpd user and group.

Server :: Disk Quota (Exceeded But Unable To Restrict)

Jun 17, 2010

I installed Diskquota on CentOS 5.1 machine. I enabled quota for some user with 1 GB as both hard and soft limits, Grace period is 0. Every this is working fine if we work from normal user's login say (user1 who is a system user). If he exceeds 1GB its will restrict that saying quota exceeded. But, If root user copies some 500MB files into his workspace, and change the ownership of those files using following command
chown user1.user1 * ( * is 500 MB files).

Then quota is exceeded and it is showed using:
repquota /home
user1 +- 2039960 997020 997020 none 298 0 0
Here its showing as some 2GB.
Soft limit is 951 MB.

So, my problem is restrict quota from all possible ways, i.e., even if root does some copying and change permissions, it must tell that disc quota exceeded.

Ubuntu Servers :: Placing Quota/cap On Users' /home Directories?

Jul 28, 2010

I have my home server setup, running 10.04 x64. The OS is installed on a 300GB WD Blue drive, and I have a RAID5 array md0, consisting of 4x 2TB WD Green drives, mounted as /home. I am sharing the home directories using samba and using them to back-up the other computers in the house. I have created a user account+password for each computer, giving it its own "/home/computername_backup/" directory to store it's backups in.

Computers being backed-up:(750GB) Gaming PC running Win7 Ultimate x64
(30GB + 2TB) HTPC running Win7 Home Premium x64
(32GB) Netbook running Win7 Home Premium x32
(250GB) 2 Macbook Pros Running OS X 10.6.4 (tweaked to allow time machine to recognize the samba share as a time machine volume

Question: 5.37TB of /home seems good for now, and I haven't run into any problems so far, but I don't want to have to keep checking. I'd like to put a size cap on each user's home, to prevent one of the computers from gobbling up all the space. Is there an easy (or hard) way to configure this type of thing? My Macbook, for example, only has a 250GB HD. I could give it 3-400GB of space for its home and that would be plenty - whenever it filled its /home/, it would start erasing the oldest backups. If there is no size limit, I believe it will just continue to grow until all the free space is gone.

Considerations: Right now, the HTPC is storing all its media locally (on the installed 2TB drive). However, I've already used 3/4 of the space and the HPTC enclosure can only hold one drive. My plan moving forward is to have /home be used to store media files (iTunes music for all computers and tv/movies for the HTPC), which is another reason I'd like to ensure that the backups don't take up all the space.

I realize I could create a partition for each computer, but I'd prefer not to go down this route. This would seem an untenable tactic if I added another computer next month, or if I realized that the partition was too small.

Is this possible? I have not tried it, I wonder if anyone tried it.

Server :: Getting Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) Errors When Using Mobile Phones

Mar 22, 2010

Recently if I have been getting Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) errors when using mobile phones to send. The ip in postfix is allowed to relay but I suspect that the mobile provider is using DHCP to issue address to the phone (though I have check the ip addresses are always allocated the same) I have checked via a fixed ip that is allowed in the relay and this does not generate the same error. Does anyone know what I can change in Amavis or Postfix to sort this out, because legal mail is being rejected via the mobile phones at the moment.
