   This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

   The smbcquotas program manipulates NT Quotas on SMB file shares.


   The following options are available to the smbcquotas program.

   -u|--user user
       Specifies the user of whom the quotas are get or set. By default
       the current user's username will be used.

       Lists all quota records of the share.

       Show the share quota status and default limits.

       This command sets/modifies quotas for a user or on the share,
       depending on the QUOTA_SET_COMMAND parameter which is described

       This option displays all QUOTA information in numeric format. The
       default is to convert SIDs to names and QUOTA limits to a readable
       string format.

       Don't actually do anything, only validate the correctness of the

       Be verbose.

       level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
       parameter is not specified is 0.

       The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log
       files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only critical
       errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable
       level for day-to-day running - it generates a small amount of
       information about operations carried out.

       Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and
       should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3
       are designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts
       of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

       Note that specifying this parameter here will override the log
       level parameter in the smb.conf file.

       Prints the program version number.

   -s|--configfile=<configuration file>
       The file specified contains the configuration details required by
       the server. The information in this file includes server-specific
       information such as what printcap file to use, as well as
       descriptions of all the services that the server is to provide. See
       smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name
       is determined at compile time.

       Base directory name for log/debug files. The extension ".progname"
       will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The log
       file is never removed by the client.

       Set the smb.conf(5) option "<name>" to value "<value>" from the
       command line. This overrides compiled-in defaults and options read
       from the configuration file.

       If specified, this parameter suppresses the normal password prompt
       from the client to the user. This is useful when accessing a
       service that does not require a password.

       Unless a password is specified on the command line or this
       parameter is specified, the client will request a password.

       If a password is specified on the command line and this option is
       also defined the password on the command line will be silently
       ingnored and no password will be used.

       Try to authenticate with kerberos. Only useful in an Active
       Directory environment.

       Try to use the credentials cached by winbind.

       This option allows you to specify a file from which to read the
       username and password used in the connection. The format of the
       file is

           username = <value>
           password = <value>
           domain   = <value>

       Make certain that the permissions on the file restrict access from
       unwanted users.

       Sets the SMB username or username and password.

       If %password is not specified, the user will be prompted. The
       client will first check the USER environment variable, then the
       LOGNAME variable and if either exists, the string is uppercased. If
       these environmental variables are not found, the username GUEST is

       A third option is to use a credentials file which contains the
       plaintext of the username and password. This option is mainly
       provided for scripts where the admin does not wish to pass the
       credentials on the command line or via environment variables. If
       this method is used, make certain that the permissions on the file
       restrict access from unwanted users. See the -A for more details.

       Be cautious about including passwords in scripts. Also, on many
       systems the command line of a running process may be seen via the
       ps command. To be safe always allow rpcclient to prompt for a
       password and type it in directly.

   -S|--signing on|off|required
       Set the client signing state.

       Use stored machine account password.

       This command line parameter requires the remote server support the
       UNIX extensions or that the SMB3 protocol has been selected.
       Requests that the connection be encrypted. Negotiates SMB
       encryption using either SMB3 or POSIX extensions via GSSAPI. Uses
       the given credentials for the encryption negotiation (either
       kerberos or NTLMv1/v2 if given domain/username/password triple.
       Fails the connection if encryption cannot be negotiated.

       The supplied password is the NT hash.

       Print a summary of command line options.

       Display brief usage message.


   The format of an the QUOTA_SET_COMMAND is an operation name followed by
   a set of parameters specific to that operation.

   To set user quotas for the user specified by -u or for the current


   To set the default quotas for a share:


   To change the share quota settings:


   All limits are specified as a number of bytes.


   The smbcquotas program sets the exit status depending on the success or
   otherwise of the operations performed. The exit status may be one of
   the following values.

   If the operation succeeded, smbcquotas returns an exit status of 0. If
   smbcquotas couldn't connect to the specified server, or when there was
   an error getting or setting the quota(s), an exit status of 1 is
   returned. If there was an error parsing any command line arguments, an
   exit status of 2 is returned.


   This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite.


   The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
   Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
   Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

   smbcquotas was written by Stefan Metzmacher.
