|-path <dir/file path>||
Names the directory or file for which to set the host volumes
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 pathnames second level (for example, /afs/.abc.com). 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>||
Sets the maximum amount of file server disk space the volume can occupy.
The quota value should be a positive integer followed by an optional
suffix: K for kibibytes (1024 bytes, the default), M for mebibytes
(1024 kibibytes), G for gibibytes (1024 mebibytes), and T for
tebibytes (1024 gibibytes). 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 volumes 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.
|-help||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/abc.com/usr/smith directory:
% fs setquota -path /afs/abc.com/usr/smith -max 3000
The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
