Technical Solution


When attempting a redirected restore to a different NSS volume on SUSE 10, the job fails due to attempting to restore disk quota information along with the data.


0xe000848f - Insufficient disk space.

Final error category: Resource Errors

Connection to the restore target has been lost. Operation canceled.


SUSE Linux 10 32 bit

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2.0 with NSS



Disk Quota from the backup volume is restored to the redirected volume, or a 0kb quota is restored to the redirected volume.


Disable Quota checking and rerun the restore job.

Commands to disable quota checking:

nss /NoQuotaChecking
nss /NoDirectoryQuotas=<volume>
nss /NoUserSpaceRestrictions=<volume>

NSS commands entered at the command line do not persist through a server reboot. They can be made persistent by adding them to the nssstart.cfg file.
