Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Users, Groups And Disk Quotas

Posted by: bitbangr Nov 21 2002, 01:47 PM

Hi all,

If a user is a member of multiple groups, from which groups disk quota do he draw from? For example:

JoeH is a member of hardware_rel, software_rel, project1 and project2. Each of these groups have a disk quota. JoeH creates a 10Mb (for example purpose only...) file. Which group will decrease its available disk space by 10Mb. Obviously, the user JoeH will, but since hes a member of multiple groups, which one gets deducted?
