|-path <dir/file path>+||
Names each file or directory for which to set the host volumes quota and
offline message. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current
working directory, which is also the default value if this argument is
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 <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 volumes 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.
|-offlinemsg||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.|
|-help||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/abc.com/usr/smith and /afs/abc.com/usr/pat:
% cd /afs/abc.com/usr % fs setvol -path smith pat -max 6500B<>
The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
