I hope somebody can help me.
When I run quota initial setup, I get this message:

Quotas are now on
Using new and old quota support
quotacheck: Can\'t find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.
quotacheck: Can\'t find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.

The quotas don\'t work. I always get the above errors.

Does anybody know how to resolve this problem ??

Thanks,
John.

What version of RedHat.... ?
This is a linux server, right?

I\'m assuming your filesystem/partitions are ext2 ?

Hi Feanor,
version of RedHat is 7.2
kernel 2.4.7-10
Apache 1.3.20
Cpanel 4.0.0-STABLE_179

This is what my dedicated hostingprovider put in my /etc/fstab file:
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults,grpquota 1 2

I also tried to add usrquota to this line, but it doesn\'t work. My main partition for hostingplans is /dev/hda6

My hostingprovider doesn\'t know how to solve it.. but I\'d like to use it... now I cannot see what diskspace my users are using.

Do you if there is any way to solve it?
And how...
I\'ll be honest: I\'m a linux starter :(

Thanks for your response!
John.

Humm....
How are your filesystems mounted exactly? What does the partition table exactly look like?

If you run /scripts/initquotas, as root from SSH (from the command line).... what happens then?
