Hi,

I have rearranged all accounts to new partition to optimized the unused disk space. Apparently, all went well except for 3 accounts which have increased a lot of disk usage. E.g; One account was around 50 GB before rearranging but it becomes around 90 GB after rearranging. I have tried fixing the quota but didn't help. I have turned off "Cache disk quota information" as well. What could be the issue?

Hello,

Can you confirm if the physical disk for the accounts remains what it used to be?

You can do so with the following command:

Bash:
du -shl ~$USER
If the physical disk space is correct, you may want to try and fix the file system quotas.

Hello,

If the du command returned 90GB then fixing the quotas will not make a difference since that is the correct usage that the physical disk is reporting.

Rearranging the account should not increase the usage since all it does is move the account.

However, you can check the rearrange account logs, which record the disk usage that the account was utilizing before the account was transferred.

Here is an example from an account I moved in a test server:


Code:
[  2126][RESTORE:1 ][A:blue            ]: Target “/home44/blue” on host “test.test.com” has 4.01 GB free and requires at least 3.19 MB free, which includes space for temporary files.
[  2126][RESTORE:1 ][A:blue            ]: Target “/home44/blue” on host “test.test.com” has 8,413,315 inodes free and requires at least 87 inodes free, which includes space for temporary files.

This can be obtained via the command line using the following:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/view_transfer $TRANSFER_ID

Or via the WHM >> Transfers >> Review Transfers and Restores

In the log, it is correct. But it doesn't make sense because the package of the user account is only eligible for 80 GB before rearranging. It would never be more than 80 GB and it didn't show any over quota warning but now it is after rearranging. Here's what in the log

Code:
Starting “RESTORE” for “Account” “theUser”.
Calculating disk space needed …
Done.
Target “/mnt/home3/theUser” on host “sub.myhostname.org” has 622.84 GB free and requires at least 89.36 GB free, which includes space for temporary files.
Target “/mnt/home3/theUser” on host “sub.myhostname.org” has 24,289,003 inodes free and requires at least 153,971 inodes free, which includes space for temporary files.
The system will move “/mnt/home2/theUser” to “/mnt/home3/theUser”.
The system will catalog files owned by “nobody” in “/mnt/home2/theUser”.
The system will copy data from “/mnt/home2/theUser” to “/mnt/home3/theUser” using multiple “rsync” executions.
