Re: quota question (repost)

Apparently the answer I've posted yesterday got lost... or maybe I've missed
it somehow. So here it is again, apologies if you receive it twice.

Steps to follow for enabling quota:

1. create the data files:

touch /var/aquota.user
touch /var/aquota.group

2. add the option 'quota' to /var in /etc/fstab, for instance change

LABEL=/var              /var                    ext3    defaults        1 2


LABEL=/var              /var                    ext3    defaults,quota  1 2

3. remount the filesystem and scan it for quota usage:

mount -o remount /var
quotacheck -vug /var

4. enable quota:

quotaon /var

At boot, the system runs quotacheck and quotaon on every partition marked with
the quota option in /etc/fstab/.

To report about quota usage, use 'repquota'; to actually set the limits, use
'setquota'; to turn off quota, 'quotaoff'.

That's all there is to it... RAID makes no difference at all.

Microsoft says it will run in 16 megs.
But they have a different meaning for the word "run" than I do.
