    I got a lot of this errors in /var/log/maillog:
    Code:
    host1 dovecot: pop3(pietro@example.com): Error: quotactl(Q_GETQUOTA, /dev/root) failed: No such file or directory
    
    It's quota setup error?
    this is my etc/fstab:
    Code:
     <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    /dev/md2        /                         ext3    errors=remount-ro       0       1
    /dev/md3        /home                 ext3    usrjquota=quota.user,jqfmt=vfsv0        1       2
    /dev/sda4       swap                   swap    defaults        0       0
    /dev/sdb4       swap                   swap    defaults        0       0
    proc                /proc                   proc    defaults                0       0
    sysfs               /sys                    sysfs   defaults                0       0
    tmpfs              /dev/shm            tmpfs   defaults        0       0
    devpts             /dev/pts             devpts  defaults        0       0
    
    thanks

    (note: i have never performed initial quota setup from whm)

    Hello,

    That message typically happens when top-level quotas are not enabled on the VPS. This document explains how to address this:

    Enable Quotas on a Virtuozzo VPS - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    However, the existence of those messages in /var/log/maillog should have been addressed with the following bug fix as of cPanel version 58.0.23:

    Fixed case CPANEL-7872: Disable mailauth quota checks if quotas are disabled.

    Could you let us know which version of cPanel is installed on this system? You can check with the following command:

    Code:
    cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    Thank you.

    my cpanel version is 11.62.0.15 and i have a dedicated on OVH

    creating symbolic link solved my problem:

    ln -s /dev/md2 /dev/root

    what is the best way to make it permanent after reboot?

    i hope it helps someone in the future , thanks
