[Big Bend EA] Volume capacity reported to Windows is incorrect
Last modified: 2013-09-23 18:29:53 EDT
Description of problem:
When a gluster volume is mounted on a Windows client as a network drive letter, the capacity displayed by Windows is incorrect. Each 1GB brick shows 4TB on Windows, 10GB bricks show 40TB.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glusterfs 126.96.36.199rhs.beta6 built on Jul 23 2013 16:20:03
Capacity is displayed by Windows Explorer
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Gluster volume
2. Mount as network drive letter on Windows client (not just browse to share)
Network drive letter claims to be 40,000 times larger than it is.
Drive letter should report actual capacity.
Setting quota on volume does not seem to affect displayed capacity. Started with two 10GB bricks and saw ~80TB, added two more 10GB bricks and saw ~160TB.
Sent patch to samba upstream.

Verified with version :
After doing a mount of gluster volume on windows the volume capacity shown by windows is correct and is same as the actual capacity.
Tried with adding bricks and it shows the correct capacity in this case as well.
