Description Johannes Keiser univentionstaff 2015-11-17 14:14:38 CET
The checkbox "Reapply settings on every login" does not overwrite user specific quota on login. In the UMC module the soft and hard limit for Data size shows 0/0 but the user specific quota is still valid.

Every share can have its own quota policy even if why are on the same partition. The problem is that the quota can only be set on a partition and not per folder.

Currently this is solved by mixing all policies and manual set quota values together if they are on the same partition. In the end the smallest value is used.

10/20   30/40

5/30    35/38

already set values
8/10    40/50

In this example the new quota would be:
5/10    30/40

That means "Reapply settings on every login" only works for smaller values than the currently set values. Deactivating the quota with 0/0 is interpreted as a bigger value.

Delete the quota in the UMC quota module before applying a new policy with bigger quota values.

Another Problem (or it might have been the actual problem here):

Shares without a quota policy are interpreted as 0/0/0/0 quotas and can replace an actual set quota policy. This depends in which order the policies are evaluated.

Ensure all shares on the devices have a quota policy set.
