Hi Managers

You need to run quotacheck -a[v] to update the quota files. This has to
be done as root.

The v switch is optional but if present gives you a little info on whats
going on, add d if you want to get a crap-load of debug info thrown at


Original question:



I'm configuring my machines to use quota.

When I use quota -v I get this:

Filesystem usage quota limit timeleft files quota limit timeleft
/export/home 606 40000 50000 120 0 0

But with du i have this:

2976 luciano

The values of du and quota (usage) are the same when the machine start, but
if I include a file, the value of quota stay wrong.
