 quotacheck_hfs(1M)                                       quotacheck_hfs(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      quotacheck_hfs: quotacheck - quota consistency checker for HFS file

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F hfs] [-V] [-pPv] filesystem ...

      /usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F hfs] [-V] [-pPv] -a

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The quotacheck command examines each HFS file system, builds a table
      of current disk usage, and compares this table against that stored in
      the disk quota file for the file system.  If any inconsistencies are
      detected, both the quota file and the current system copy of the
      incorrect quotas are updated.

      quotacheck expects each file system to be checked to have a file named
      quotas in the root directory.  If none is present, quotacheck reports
      an error and ignores the file system.  quotacheck is normally run at
      mount time from start up scripts.

      filesystem represents a mount point or block special device (e.g.,

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      quotacheck recognizes the following options:

           -F hfs         Specify the file system type hfs.

           -V             Echo the completed command line, but perform no
                          other action.  The command line is generated by
                          incorporating the user-specified options and other
                          information derived from /etc/fstab.  This option
                          allows the user to verify the command line.

           -a             Obtain list of file systems to check from
                          /etc/fstab.  Only mounted file systems of type hfs
                          and rw (or default) with the quota option are

           -v             Indicate the calculated disk quotas for each user
                          on a particular file system.  quotacheck normally
                          reports only those quotas that are modified.

           -p             Check file systems in parallel as allowed by equal
                          values in the pass number field in /etc/fstab.

           -P             Preen file systems, checking only those with
                          invalid quota statistics (quotaoff and edquota
                          commands can invalidate quota statistics as
                          discussed in quota(5) - see quotaoff(1M) and
