Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS2 Quota File Error



Hi Steven,
Does the 'gfs2_quota reset' operation fail for some reason? The reset
operation should truncate your quota file and you should be able to
start using quotas afresh.
I just tried resetting and initing the quota file on my gfs2 filesystem
(latest bits) and I don't see this warning.
What kernel and what gfs2-utils packages are you running?
Also, any clue with respect to  the quota operations you did on the fs
to get to this state would be helpful.
Are you able to perform other quota operations like limit, warn, list,
get etc., without seeing this warning?

Thanks,
--Abhi
