NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     edquota - edit user or project quotas

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/etc/edquota [	-n ] [ -j ] names...

     /usr/etc/edquota [	-n ] [ -j ] [ -p proto-name ] names...

     /usr/etc/edquota [	-n ] -t

     /usr/etc/edquota [	-n ] [ -f filesystem [ -l subopt=value ... ] ]

     /usr/etc/edquota [	-n ] [ -a [ -l subopt=value ...	] ]

     /usr/etc/edquota [	-n ] [ -j ] -i inputfile

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     edquota is	a quota	editor.	 When used with	the -j option all operations
     are performed on project quotas and command line names are	project	names.
     Without the -j option all operations are performed	on user	quotas and
     command line names	are user names.	 One or	more users or project names
     may be specified on the command line.  When used without the -f and -l
     options, a	temporary file is created with an ASCII	representation of the
     current disk quotas for each user or project and an editor	is then
     invoked on	that file.  The	quotas may then	be modified, new quotas	added,
     etc.  Upon	leaving	the editor, edquota reads the temporary	file and
     reflects the changes in the quota system using the	quotactl(2) system

     The editor	invoked	is vi(1) unless	the EDITOR environment variable
     specifies otherwise.  If a	non-default editor is used, the	editor must
     start itself in the foreground, otherwise the editor will see an empty
     file instead of quota data.  In particular, jot(1G) will not work as
     EDITOR without its	-f option set.

     Only the super-user may edit quotas. Only quotas for local	filesystems
     may be edited.  In	order for quotas to be established on an EFS
     filesystem, the root directory of the filesystem must contain a file,
     owned by root, called quotas. XFS has no such restriction (see
     quotaon(1M) and quotas(4) for details). However, target XFS filesystems
     are required have quotas already turned on	before setting quota limits
     using edquota.

     All disk limits are in given kilobytes. All disk limits are rounded off
     to	the next multiple of filesystem	block size (see	mkfs_xfs(1M) ).

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -n	  Dry run. No actual modifications will	be performed. The command will
	  instead display what may have	happened. This is useful in making a
	  large	number of changes as with the -i option.

     -j	  Project quotas.  Any name specified on the command line is
	  considered a project name.  When used	with the -i option, IDs	in the
	  inputfile are	considered project IDs.

     -p	  Duplicate the	quotas of the prototypical user	specified for each
	  user specified.  This	is the normal mechanism	used to	initialize
	  quotas for a small groups of users.

     -t	  Edit the soft	time limits for	each file system.  If the time limits
	  are zero, the	default	time limits in <sys/quota.h> are used.	Time
	  units	of sec(onds), min(utes), hour(s), day(s), week(s) and month(s)
	  are understood.  Time	limits are printed in the greatest possible
	  time unit such that the value	is greater than	or equal to one.

     -i	  Read in the limits from the file inputfile that was generated	by
	  repquota(1M).	 This option is	very useful in recreating the limits
	  of a large number of users. Applies only to XFS filesystems.

     -f	  Used only in conjunction with	the -l option. This option is used to
	  restrict the scope of	the subsequent -l options to a single
	  filesystem.  filesystem can be the block device or the name of the
	  directory the	XFS filesystem is mounted on. It is possible to	have
	  multiple -f options with any number of -l options in between.

     -a	  Used only in conjunction with	the -l option.	This option extends
	  the scope of the subsequent -l options to all	XFS filesystems	that
	  have quotas turned on.

     -l	  [uid=UID|projid=PRID],bsoft=val,bhard=val,isoft=val,ihard=val	where
	  the vals are the softlimits and hardlimits on	disk blocks and	files.
	  Disk block limits are	always specified in kilobytes.

     /usr/etc/edquota -f /myxfsfilesys -l uid=998,bhard=1500,bsoft=1000

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     quotas		 quota file at the EFS file system root
     /etc/mtab		 mounted file systems

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Options -i, -f, -a, -l -j do not work on EFS filesystems.
