    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?
