Quota problem WHM/Virtuozzo

Gee, I've reported this to support couple months ago,
and it's all but quiet! Just search through this forum and
still no solution found, so I'd like to post it here in case
somebody has found the solution.

I'm running cPanel/WHM in Virtuozzo (VPS), and all is good
except the quota stuff. When looking at cPanel, quota shows
correctly. But when you check it from WHM, it shows Unlimited
quota for every users.

/scripts/fixquota won't work.

In Virtuozzo, filesystem needs to be mounted as / only
(at least to my knowledge). In shell, quota <user> works
fine, but repquota -a doesn't work (it shows 0 quota,
but correct usage info).

Is there anything I can do about this?

I have no problem running repquota or quota command
in my other plain RedHat in Virtuozzo.

Thanks in advance.

OK, my bad! :(

After an investigation, I noticed that the other VE (not cPanel but plain RH) which used to report quota correctly now does NOT! I remember that I just upgraded its quota package last night on this VE to latest RH release, and that really breaks things up. So after reverted back to Virtuozzo quota pacakge, repquota -a continues to work fine like before. So I went to a VE with cPanel, force replace the quota package to Virtuozzo's one, and now everything works fine!

Just in case sombody wants to know.

And next thing we should do is to prevent WHM to auto upgrade the quota package!

cPanel team is working on getting a patch to check
if their update scripts should skip updating quota
package in a VPS box. If this is finished, then the
whole problem with quota in Virtuozzo would be completed.
