 quotaon(1M)                                                     quotaon(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      quotaon, quotaoff - turn HFS file system quotas on and off

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/quotaon [-v] filesystem ...

      /usr/sbin/quotaon [-v] -a

      /usr/sbin/quotaoff [-v] filesystem ...

      /usr/sbin/quotaoff [-v] -a

    Remarks    [Toc]    [Back]
      These commands are provided for compatibility only.  Their use is
      neither required nor recommended because mount and umount enable and
      disable quotas cleanly (see mount(1M)).  See WARNINGS below for more

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The quotaon command enables quotas on one or more HFS file systems.

      The quotaoff command disables quotas on one or more HFS file systems.

      filesystem is either the name of the mount point of the file system,
      or the name of the block device containing the file system.  The file
      systems specified must be currently mounted in order to turn quotas on
      or off.  Also, the file system quota file, quotas, must be present in
      the root directory of each specified file system.

      These commands will update the appropriate entries in /etc/mnttab to
      indicate that quotas are on or off for each file system.

      When enabling quotas interactively after boot time, the quotacheck
      command should be run immediately afterward (see WARNINGS below).

      Use mount (see mount(1M)) to determine whether quotas are enabled on
      mounted file systems.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      The following options affect the behavior described above.

           -a   Obtain the filesystem list from /etc/fstab, using entries of
                type hfs and rw (or default) with the quota option (see

           -v   Generate a message for each file system affected.

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

 Hewlett-Packard Company            - 1 -   HP-UX 11i Version 2: August 2003

 quotaon(1M)                                                     quotaon(1M)

      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,
      quotaon 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.

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Using quotaoff to disable quotas on a file system causes the system to
      discontinue tracking quotas for that file system, and marks the quota
      clean flag in the superblock NOT_OK (see fsclean(1M)).  This in turn,
      forces a quotacheck the next time the system is booted.  Since quotas
      are enabled and disabled cleanly by mount and umount anyway, the use
      of quotaon and quotaoff is generally discouraged.

 AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
      Disk quotas were developed by the University of California, Berkeley,
      Sun Microsystems, Inc., and HP.
