Active Dir User mode vs Domain mode

  Asked By: Kara    Date: Feb 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1453

We are trying to be able to set quotas at the user or group level. Based
on the following help article we need to use active dir user mode. Is
there any down side to using Active dir mode? We find the domain mode is
limiting us to only assigning a quota to our entire site.

Looks like what you said is worth exploring:

Manage site quotas and locks


Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services allows you to specify quotas for
sites, so that you can manage site and server resources. You can create
multiple sets of quotas, called quota templates, and use them in
different areas of the server farm, or to suit different users. You can
use locks to stop sites from exceeding your storage quota limits, and to
block all users from accessing a site if necessary.

Create a quota template <javascript:ToggleDiv('divExpCollAsst_1')>

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to
Administrative Tools, and then click SharePoint Central Administration.

2. On the Central Administration page, under Component
Configuration, click Manage quotas and locks.

3. On the Manage Quotas and Locks page, click Manage
Quota Templates.

4. On the Manage Quota Templates page, in the Template
name area, click Create a new quota template.

5. In the Template to start from box, select a template
to base your new template on.

6. In the New template name box, type the name to use for
your new quota template.

7. Select the Limit site storage to a maximum of: ___ MB
check box, and then type the amount of storage to allow at a maximum.

8. In the Storage Limit Values section, select the Send
warning e-mail when site storage reaches ___ MB check box, and then type
the amount of storage to allow before sending a warning e-mail message.

9. In the Invited User Limits section, select the Limit
invited users to a maximum of: ___ users, and then type the number of
users to allow.

Note The user limit option is available only in Active Directory
account mode.

10. Click OK.

When you click OK, the new template is added to the list of available
templates, and the page is refreshed.

Delete a quota template <javascript:ToggleDiv('divExpCollAsst_2')>

You can delete a quota template if you change your quota structures.
However, remember that deleting a quota template does not delete quota
values from sites that were created using the quota template. To remove
quotas from all sites using a particular quota template, you must use
the object model and perform a SQL Server query.

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to
Administrative Tools, and then click SharePoint Central Administration.

2. On the Central Administration page, under Component
Configuration, click Manage quotas and locks.

3. On the Manage Quotas and Locks page, click Manage
Quota Templates.

4. On the Manage Quota Templates page, in the Template
name area, click Edit an existing template.

5. In the Template to modify box, select the quota
template you want to delete.

6. Click Delete.

When you click OK, Windows SharePoint Services removes the quota
template from the list of available templates, and the page is
refreshed.

Change an existing quota template
<javascript:ToggleDiv('divExpCollAsst_3')>

You can change individual quota values in a template. The new values
apply only to new top-level Web sites created by using the quota
template. Windows SharePoint Services does not apply the changed values
to existing sites unless you use the object model to update the values
in the database.

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to
Administrative Tools, and then click SharePoint Central Administration.

2. On the Central Administration page, under Component
Configuration, click Manage quotas and locks.

3. On the Manage Quotas and Locks page, click Manage
Quota Templates.

4. On the Manage Quota Templates page, in the Template
name area, click Edit an existing template.

5. In the Template to modify box, select the quota
template to change.

6. Update the options you want to change, and then click
OK.

When you click OK, Windows SharePoint Services updates the template, and
refreshes the page.

Specifying a quota template for a virtual server
<javascript:ToggleDiv('divExpCollAsst_4')>

When you extend a new virtual server, you can specify a quota template
to use as the default quota template for that virtual server on the
Extend and Create Content Database page. Any new top-level Web sites
that you create under the virtual server automatically use the values in
the default quota template. You can change the default quota template
for a virtual server from the Virtual Server Settings page. Changing the
default quota template does not change quota values for existing
top-level Web sites. Only newly created top-level Web sites use the new
quota template.
