Okay, here is the problem. I have a Windows 10 machine that is doing regular
backups and placing them on my FreeBSD machine running samba version 48. This
backup creates numerous directories under the designated directory in my home

Error message, omiting the date and time stuff:

[smbd[some number]" failed to get quota for group ID 1001 on {{at this point
any of several paths are listed}}

Is there some way to use a wild card entry to include them all, like this:

	zfs set groupquota at 1001=none ~/backup*
