    Hey guys,
    I've worked and worked on this issue and tried absolutely everything that I can think of. I've run initial quota setup, /scripts/fixquotas, /scripts/reserquotas,
    /sbin/quotaoff -a, and just about any fix I can find. I get these various errors:

    quotaoff: Cannot find quota file on / [/dev/hda3] to turn quotas on/off.

    edquota: Quota file not found or has wrong format.

    If all your quotas are listed as 0 used and this is incorrect; Please consider running /scripts/fixquotas. [Your (a)quota.user files are probably corrupt]!

    Now I've tried everything I know to do, but perhaps I am overlooking something. Can someone give me an idea of what I need to do to fix this?

    Our datacenter handled our quota upgrade and they keep assuring me that that is not the problem. So you're sure that's what needs to be done?

    hmm, oh yea, 1 more thing, add userquotas to the /etc/fstab file... well, thats what i did for freebsd, so it'd look something like this..

    /dev/ad1s1e /usr/home ufs rw,userquota 2 2

    maybe u can do a search around for userquota and how to enable it on ur partition. not very sure about linux... havent used it in a long time.
