NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       quotaon, quotaoff - turns quota enforcement on or off

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/quotaon [-guv] file_spec...

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

       /usr/sbin/quotaoff [-guv] file_spec...

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

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Turns  on (with quotaon) or turns off (with quotaoff) quotas
 for all file systems identified in the /etc/fstab file
       as  read/write  with quotas.  Turns on or off group quotas
       only.  Turns on or off user quotas only.  Prints a message
       for each file system whose quotas are turned on or off.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies one or more file systems.  Specify any file system
 by entering its full path name or its mount point. The
       full  path name is the name entered in the file-spec field
       of the file system's entry in the  /etc/fstab  file.   The
       mount  point is the name entered in the mnt_point field of
       the file system's entry in the /etc/fstab file.

              For UFS file systems, you can  alternatively  enter
              the name of a block device special file.  For example:

              For AdvFS filesets, you can alternatively enter the
              name  of  a  file domain, a pound sign (#), and the
              name    of    the    fileset.      For     example:

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  quotaon  and quotaoff commands enable or disable user
       and group quotas that  have  been  established  using  the
       edquota  command.  To  turn the quotas on or off, the file
       systems specified must have the userquota  and  groupquota
       entries in the /etc/fstab file and be mounted at the time.

       quotaon and quotaoff must be run by a user with  superuser

       These commands expect each file system to have quota files
       named quota.user and quota.group in the root directory  of
       the  file  system.  (These  default  file locations may be
       overridden in the /etc/fstab file.)

       By default,  both user and group quotas  are  affected  by
       the  quotaon  and  quotaoff commands. Use the -g option to
       specify only group quotas or the -u option to specify only
       user quotas.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  term  file system represents either a UFS file system
       or an AdvFS fileset.

       The quotaon and quotaoff commands are used to manage  user
       and group quotas:  they are not used to manage AdvFS fileset
 quotas.  Use the chfsets command to set or clear fileset

       AdvFS always maintains user and group file and block usage
       in the quota files (quota.user and quota.group).  User and
       group  quota limit information displays with the showfsets
       command even if quota enforcement is turned off.

       When a file system is unmounted, user and group quotas are
       disabled.  After a file system has been remounted, use the
       quotaon command to enable user and  group  quotas  on  the
       file system.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
