       fs_setquota - Sets the quota for the volume containing a file or


       fs setquota [-path <dir/file path>]
           -max <max quota in kbytes> [-help]

       fs setq [-p <dir/file path>] -m <max quota in kbytes> [-h]

       fs sq [-p <dir/file path>] -m <max quota in kbytes> [-h]


       The fs setquota command sets the quota (maximum possible size) of the
       read/write volume that contains the directory or file named by the
       -path argument.

       To set the quota on multiple volumes at the same time, use the fs
       setvol command.

       To display a volume’s quota, use the fs examine, fs listquota, or fs
       quota command.


       Currently, the maximum size of a volume is 2 terabytes (2^31 bytes) and
       the maximum size of a /vicepX partition on a fileserver is also 2
       terabytes. The fileserver will not report an error when it has access
       to a partition larger than 2 terabytes, but it will probably fail if
       the administrator attempts to use more than 2 terabytes of space. In
       addition, there are reports of erroneous disk usage numbers when vos
       partinfo or other OpenAFS disk reporting tools are used with partitions
       larger than 2 terabytes.


       -path <dir/file path>
           Names the directory or file for which to set the host volume’s
           quota. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current
           working directory, which is also the default value if this argument
           is omitted.

           Specify the read/write path to the file or directory, to avoid the
           failure that results from attempting to change a read-only volume.
           By convention, the read/write path is indicated by placing a period
           before the cell name at the pathname’s second level (for example,
           /afs/ For further discussion of the concept of read/write
           and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount
           reference page.

       -max <max quota in kbytes>
           Sets the maximum amount of file server disk space the volume can
           occupy. Specify the number of one-kilobyte blocks as a positive
           integer (1024 is one megabyte). A value of 0 sets an unlimited
           quota, but the size of the disk partition that houses the volume
           places an absolute limit on the volume’s size.

           If the -path argument is omitted (to set the quota of the volume
           housing the current working directory), the -max switch must be
           included with this argument.

           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.


       The following command imposes a maximum quota of 3000 kilobytes on the
       volume that houses the /afs/ directory:

          % fs setquota -path /afs/ -max 3000


       The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
