Import a quota configuration file

You can import quota settings in the form of a configuration file that has been exported from another Isilon cluster. This task can only be performed from the OneFS command-line interface.


  1. Open a secure shell (SSH) connection to any node in the cluster and log in.
  2. Navigate to the location of the exported quota configuration file.
  3. At the command prompt, run the following command, where <filename> is the name of an exported configuration file:
    isi_classic quota import --from-file=<filename>
    The system parses the file and imports the quota settings from the configuration file. Quota settings that you configured before importing the quota configuration file are retained, and the imported quota settings are effective immediately.
