Migrating from NTFS-based quotas to File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) quotas in Windows Server 2003 R2

A customer recently asked about how to migrate NTFS quotas to FSRM quotas. Georgi Matev, the program manager for FSRM, responds:

If NTFS-based quotas were used for user home directories, the migration is pretty straightforward. First, the customer needs to create one or more FSRM quota templates that encapsulate the desired quota policy. The next step would be to use the auto apply template functionality to associate the desired template with the parent folder under which all user home directories are hosted. Once this is done, quotas based on the template will be automatically created for all existing and newly created user home directories under this root.
