File System Backup Quotas are not being Enforced

Article ID: WFS0003 A user that has exceeded the effective quota successfully backs up an owned file system.

Symptom

A backup operation succeeds for a client owned by a user whose quota has already been exceeded.

Cause

The first backup run for a newly defined user cannot enforce limits, since the user must be backed up once to determine how much backup storage space a given file system is actually consuming.

Resolution

Re-run the backup job for that user, then confirm that over-quota file system backups do not complete, and generate notifications as expected.
