Hi David,
Quotas are supported by vfs_glusterfs for samba. I have also set quota 
on the volume correctly. If you try to write more data then the quota on 
the directory(/shares/testsharedave ), it will not allow.

But for the clients (i.e. Windows/smb, nfs, fuse) to reflect in the meta 
data  information (i.e. properties in Windows) , you have run below 
volume set  command on respective volume.

gluster volume set <VOLUME NAME> quota-deem-statfs on
