The use jailshell on new account creation is not ticked. The manage shells shows nobody with jailshell, but some of my own accounts have normal shell. Those first 2 statements don't even matter though, as you'll see below. I only included them because searching for this issue has brought that up frequently. I use sftp to ftp to my accounts, and every one that I have sftp'd to now has /home/virtfs/username dir using 4GB each. Many threads and sources elsewhere say /home/virtfs doesn't actually use space, but on my server it either is using space, or my server thinks it is. According to "du -h --max-depth=1 /" and "du -h --max-depth=1 /home" for more detail, the virtfs subdirectory is using up 45GB of space. Using "df -h" verifies it is using actual space. Code: root@server [/]# du -h --max-depth=1 /home 321M home/oneuser 444K home/anotheruser ... 45G home/virtfs 18M home/moreusers ... 144G home/ All /home/users totaled 98GB so du says virtfs is using space. I got a warning email this morning that / was running out of space. Code: root@server [/]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 287G 196G 27G 91% / /dev/sda1 99M 19M 76M 20% /boot tmpfs 1001M 0 1001M 0% /dev/shm /usr/tmpDSK 485M 11M 449M 3% /tmp So I deleted some huge files (50GB worth) that I didn't need but wanted, and can get again later, so now I have 77GB free. Is virtfs supposed to use up actual space? If not, why is it? Is sftp'ing supposed to create the virtfs dir even though jailshell is off? How can I stop those virtfs dirs from being created?
