Problems with using Disk quotas on RH 9 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I have tried to setup Disk Quotas on a RH 9 machine (2.4.20-8 i686) by following the instructions in the Redhat customization guide. I edit the etc/fstab file as described. (Add usrquota,grpquota to the file system I want quotas for - In my case /) I then reboot, and then use quotacheck -acug / as described, but I get a "Bad number of Arguments" error in stead of it creating a aquota.user and aquota.group as it is supposed to.

    Default Problems with using Disk quotas on RH 9

    Hi,

    I have tried to setup Disk Quotas on a RH 9 machine
    (2.4.20-8 i686) by following the instructions in the
    Redhat customization guide.
    I edit the etc/fstab file as described. (Add usrquota,grpquota to the
    file system I want quotas for - In my case /)
    I then reboot, and then use
    quotacheck -acug /
    as described, but I get a "Bad number of Arguments" error
    in stead of it creating a aquota.user and aquota.group as it
    is supposed to.

    The quota version is as supplied with the Redhat 9 boxed set
    I purchased (I installed everything).

    I would appreciate any help in how to get quotas working on my
    system.

    Regards
    Anton

    I believe you can have either user quotas or group quotas, so I suspect that
    is the problem here.

    Bad number of arguments.
    Utility for checking and repairing quota files.

    ^
    The answer is in the error message, you can't specify a
    filesystem AND "-a".

    -a Check all mounted non-NFS filesystems in /etc/mtab
    (from 'man quotacheck')

    Nope, try www.tldp.org, there is a great quota HOWTO.
