What are the event IDs in the System Log when a user exceeds their Quota.

Disk Quotas are easy ways of making sure that a single user does not consum all of your network storage space. On an individual computer, it makes sure the user does not consume space that you need for future applications. I did a quick test run to get the correct event log enteries for quotas. In class, we had some that were generating log enties and some that were not. When properly configured, you will get enteries for:

Exceeded warning threshold:

  • Event ID: 36
  • Cource Ntfs
  • Log: System
  • Message: A user hit their quota threshold on volume volume label:

When the user hits their quota limit:

  • Event ID: 37
  • Cource Ntfs
  • Log: System
  • Message: A user hit their quota threshold on volume volume label:

The difference between both messages is the Event ID.
