Hi!

Is there a possibility to limit quota of users of certain domain by administrator.

I mean, that the "master admin" could limit max quota for a domain (for example max 5GB/user) and "domain admin" could not override that.

This feature could be usable in service provider environment, where customers pay based on disk space /user.

For what it's worth: a mail domain admin can't change the quota on users mapped from a directory service.

What do you exactly mean???

A user with domain admin rights cannot change the quotas on users mapped from Active Directory (and maybe Open Directory; haven't tested). At least that's the case in 6.7.2. You still can't set the default quota for a domain, bu at least the domain admin can't change it afterwards.

I would like to keep the domain admin from changing quota at all for anyone. The fact that they can change quotas keeps me from allowing the admin feature at all. Using open directory or active directory is not a reasonable solution for us.

Well, it wasn't meant as a suggested solution on my part, just a tip. One of our customers use a designated domain admin to update public contact lists etc. The fact that an increased disk quota leads to a bigger invoice keeps the donain admin in check - unless someone really needs a bigger quota. Since we effectively sell disk space by the gigabyte, it's not up to us to decide what quotas people need. It's self service, sort of, within reason. Also, it's expensive for us to administer quotas when disk space costs so little.

And yes, we get a quota report every morning to stay on top of the "90-percenters" and the subsequent KOFF sync conflicts when (not if ...) they hit the ceiling.

Just my two cents ...

Sounds like its working for you. Its just a bit too loose and requires too much checking for us. I can't be comparing quotas every day to what they are supposed to have. We have the same situation where they pay for more storage, and that is the way of anyone that sells mail service. Its just this part of the control that I can't give to the client. I wish Kerio would allow us to lock down the quota. The rest is fine for a client to admin.

Yes, I agree. While users should have enough quota, there's always the chance that the "it can't hurt" mindset sneaks in and the mail server fills up during the night. Quotas on common resources shouldn't really be left to the users.

I agree and quote everything as IMHO it's just a nonsense that a subuser as a domain admin can freely change a fundamental value as "quota limit"
The same way he can't add a user if Kerio admin doesn't allow him it should be for quota as well.
Actually I can't give to my customers the domain admin access only because this situation. So for me "dmain admin" is a totally useless feature
I've already set a feature request on 14 May 2008 and they answer me:
This feature has been requested by a few customers and has been put into a suggestion ticket. Your name has already been added to the list of interested people and you will be contacted if/when this feature becomes available.

kinda 2 years ago ... i'm start thinking they don't care about it too much.
I'm gonna reopen the ticket in order to have more news.

While we're at it, I would like to restrict the ability to create mailing lists. This is a bit dangerous in the wrong hands.
