How to Assign Disk Quota to Particular User in Windows Server 2012 - Part 2

Introduction

In my previous article I explained How to Assign Disk Quota to a Particular User in Windows Server 2012. This article is a continuation of that article.

In this article I will explain what is the necessary feature that needs to be installed so that a quota can be assigned to the user. I will also explain how to install this feature.

We need to install and configure the File Server and File Server Resource Manager, without these features the quota made by you will not be assigned.

Step 1

First of all login to your Windows Server 2012 as Administrator, after your logging process has been completed the Server Manager will be opened automatically, if it doesn't open then you must open it manually.

After selecting the Server click on "Next".

Step 5

Now a List of Rolls will appear in front of you, scroll down to find the option of "File and Storage Services" and expand it, after it is expanded it will show an option for "File and iSCSI Services"; again expand it. Now you will see a list of options available to be installed. Here select the File Server and File Server Resource Manager (my File Server is already installed).
