       fs_setvol - Set quota and messages for a volume containing a file or


       fs setvol [-path <dir/file path>+]
           [-max <disk space quota in 1K units>]
           [-offlinemsg <offline message>] [-help]

       fs setv [-p <dir/file path>+]
           [-ma <disk space quota in 1K units>]
           [-o <offline message>] [-h]

       fs sv [-p <dir/file path>+]
           [-ma <disk space quota in 1K units>]
           [-o <offline message>] [-h]


       The fs setvol command sets the quota (maximum possible size) of the
       read/write volume that contains each directory or file named by the
       -path argument. To associate a message with the volume which then
       appears in the output of the fs examine command, include the
       -offlinemsg argument.

       To display all of the settings made with this command, use the fs
       examine command. The fs listquota command reports a fileset’s quota,
       and the fs quota command the percent of quota used.

       To set quota on one volume at a time, use the fs setquota 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 each file or directory for which to set the host volume’s
           quota and offline message. 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 <disk space quota in 1K units>
           Sets the maximum amount of file server disk space the volume can
           occupy. Provide a positive integer to indicate the number of one-
           kilobyte blocks (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 (so that the command sets the
           quota of the volume housing the current working directory), the
           -max switch must be provided.

           Associates a message with the volume which then appears in the
           output of the fs examine command. Its intended use is to explain
           why the volume is currently offline.

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


       The following command imposes a 6500 kilobyte quota on the volumes
       mounted at the home directories /afs/ and

          % cd /afs/
          % fs setvol -path smith pat -max 6500B<>


       The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
