Disk quota help

By webster.rantsolase ·
Good day all, last week Wednesday I managed to setup disk quota on ourw Win 2003 server, this somehow propagated to the clients and all the client's HDD were set to 500MB, which was the limit I had set on the Server, now I am unable to reverse nor change that setting, all the changes I make now they just affect the network folders but not the client's HDD themselves, and it would appear that I would have to go to each and every machine and change it one at a time. Could anyone point me in the right direction here as to how to undo the change?

Use Group Policy

by Dedlbug In reply to Disk quota help

If you enabled Disk quota for the Server hard drives, then that will affect the shares the workstations/users connect to. Not the workstation hard drives themselves. You should be able to uncheck the "Enable Quota Management" box for the server drive. (right-click server drive, properties, quota) If the changes do not reflect, reboot the workstation. (maybe have to reboot server too...not sure)

If you wish to setup disk quota for the domain, then I suggest to use Group Policy. Create a new GPO and adjust settings: "Computer COnfiguration" - "Administrative Templates" - "System" - "Disk Quotas". Remember to enable Disk Quota here as well.
