 quotacheck(1M)                                               quotacheck(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      quotacheck - file system quota consistency checker

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F FStype] [-V]
           [-o specific-options] filesystem ...

      /usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F FStype] [-V]
           [-o specific-options] -a

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The quotacheck command examines each 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 such as

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

           -F Fstype      Specify the file system type on which to operate
                          (see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)).  If this option
                          is not included on the command line, then the file
                          system type is determined from the file /etc/fstab
                          by matching filesystem with an entry in that file.
                          If there is no entry in /etc/fstab, then the file
                          system type is determined from the file

           -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.

           -o specific-options
                          Specify options specific to each file system type.
                          specific-options is a list of suboptions and/or
                          keyword/attribute pairs intended for a FStype-
                          specific module of the command.  See the file
                          system specific man pages for a description of the
                          specific-options supported, if any.

 quotacheck(1M)                                               quotacheck(1M)

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

    Environment Variables
      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is set to the
      empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each
      unspecified or empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to
      the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      quotacheck behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to
      "C".  See environ(5).

    International Code Set Support    [Toc]    [Back]
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.
