    I get this when trying to run /scripts/initquotas

    Code:
    root@server [~]# /scripts/initquotas
    Linux Quota Support
    Quotas are now on
    Warning virtual file systems are mounted. Quotas may be counted as double
    for users who are currently logged in. Please have jailshell users logout
    before running quotacheck in the future!
    
    
    All jailed users will be logged out in 60 seconds!

    Hello :)

    The above message indicates quotas on the system were not updated because a virtFS mount could not be unmounted. To unmount a bind-mounted directory, you can use the umount command. This is documented at:

    VirtFS

    You may also need to use the following command:

    Code:
    # /scripts/clear_orphaned_virtfs_mounts
    This script only removes the mounts for users who no longer use jailshell or no longer exist. If the issue persists, feel free to open a support ticket so we may check further:

    Thank you.
