User and group disk quotas set limits on how much storage a user can consume. Quotas are important to preventing users from consuming all of the disk space on a system. In this lab, students will install the quota package and learn to configure group and user quotas for a filesystem.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
