I've tried adding "quota" and "usrquota" to the fstab flags for the
NFS-mounted directory, but "mount" complains about those flags being
unrecognized. I'm pretty sure from the googling I've done that
NFS are possible, but I'm sure not turning up any concrete pointers
to make it work.
Quotas for NFS shares are enforced on the server end. You would use
the usrquota and grpquota flags in fstab *on the server* for the
filesystem it's exporting. Hopefully your NAS appliance supports
quotas and offers a way to turn them on in whatever configuration
interface it has.
