A strange request for our first “AskAFP”: I’m interested in knowing what people want to do with disk quotas on OSXS for AD users.
I’m coming up with a few scripts that should automate this whole process. I’m curious to know if people want to enforce quotas on a group basis, or just for users. Also, are you enforcing quotas for all of your AD users, or just a specific group of them. Anything else you want to do with quotas?

The biggest sticking point is the DNS, since you’ll need to co-opt the iDisk DNS records. The article has you just stomp on the entire apple.com domain, which is probably a bit ham-fisted. Instead just create a host record in /etc/hosts for the specific address that you want.Read more›
