    Everything was working correctly, then I just added a new domain and noticed the quota was "unlimited".

    So I ran ./initquotas, ./fixquotas and ./resetquotas all received the following error for each user:



    quote:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    edquota: Can't duplicate descriptor of file to write to: Bad file descriptor
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Now all domains have "unlimited" listed as the quota.

    Has anyone seen this before? What should be done to fix this, I even tried deleting aquota.user and quota.user in / after I backed them up first, then running ./initquotas still the same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Thanks for the tip about --useplanquotes, but that doesn't work either. Still receive:

    edquota: Can't duplicate descriptor of file to write to: Bad file descriptor

    everytime I use any of the quota scripts in /scripts.

    Found cause and Fix

    The error I was having is due to edquota tries to read all mounted hard drives quotas. :rolleyes:

    Since I still had a slave mounted, this is what caused the error.

    Simple fix is to run /scripts/fixquotas on the mounted drive too, for example if your mount was under /oldroot, you would use /oldroot/scripts/fixquotas
