  •  Step 2:

    • Select  "Add-on"

    • Define the parameters that refer to the resource you selected. For example, enter a soft and hard limit for disk quota.

Connecting the Add-On to a basic service package:

  • Click the basic service package that you want to connect the Add-On to.

  • Click the "Edit" button.

  • Click "Next" until you are prompted to step: "Edit Service Package - Select Add-Ons"

  • Proceed to the "Accounts" tab.

  • Select the "Apply Service Package" checkbox. By selecting this checkbox you will be able to get to the next screen where you can select the Add-On you want to apply.

For example, if you modified the quotas in the service package but did not apply the changes to the accounts, then this action will apply the changes to this specific account, but not to all other accounts that are assigned with this package.

  • Click the "Next" button.

  • Select the Add-On you want to add from the Available Add-Ons window and click the  button.

  • Click "Next" until you are prompted to the "Finish" button. Click the "Finish" button.
    Server Manager has now applied all the service package changes and re-calculated all the quotas for this account (Package + Add-Ons).
