Change Auto Apply Quota Properties

Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

You cannot modify the individual properties in the auto apply quota. To change individual quota properties, you must first Create a Quota Template or Edit Quota Template Properties, and then apply the new or updated quota template to the auto apply quota path. You have the option of extending the changes to some, all, or none of the existing volume or folder quotas in the auto apply quota path. This feature simplifies the process of updating the properties of quotas that were derived from an auto apply quota by providing one central point where you can make all the changes.

To change auto apply quota properties
  1. Open the Microsoft File Server Resources Manager (FSRM). (To open the FSRM, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click File Server Resource Manager).

  2. In the navigation pane, click Quota Management, and then click Quotas.

  3. In the results pane, click the auto apply quota path where you want to change the properties.

  4. In the Actions pane, click Edit Quota Properties.

  5. In the Edit Auto Apply Quota dialog box, select the quota template in the Derive properties from this quota template list that has the properties that you want to apply to the auto apply quota path.

  6. In the Summary of auto apply quota properties text box, review the auto apply quota properties, and then click OK to save your changes.

  7. On the Update Quotas Derived from Auto Apply Quota dialog box, choose how you want to apply the changes, and then click OK.

    1. If you have quotas that have been modified since they were automatically generated, and you do not want to change them, select Apply auto apply quota only to derived quotas that match the original auto apply quota. This option updates only those quotas in the auto apply quota path that have not been edited since they were automatically generated.

    2. If you want to modify all existing quotas in the auto apply quota path, select Apply auto apply quota to all derived quotas.

      noteNote
      If you choose to apply the changes to all quotas in the auto apply quota path, you will overwrite any custom quota properties that you created.

    3. If you want the existing quotas to remain unchanged but you want to apply the modified auto apply quota to new subfolders in the auto apply quota path, select Do not apply auto apply quota to derived quotas.
