Dear Friends

        the problem has been solved
        the 'quotas' file in every filesystem implementing quotas
        had permissions 644 instead of 600.

        I had gone to and started implementing quotas
        afresh on all filesystems when i noticed this.


Dear Friends

        I have a sparc SS20 running solaris 2.5 on which certain file
systems have quota's implemented.

        I have noticed that users are able to store files above their
quota limits even after time limit has expired.

        the command
        'quota -v '
        also does not show the latest quota usage stats.

        seeking advice/help
