I'm trying to set-up diskquotas on a volume in the AIX environment.
I follow the instructions from
AIX Version 4.3 System Management Guide: Operating System and Devices
Setting Up the Disk Quota System
to 100 %
everything seems OK ...
when I do
quotaon -v /mydisk
/mydisk: group quotas turned on
/mydisk: user quotas turned on
however, if I test like
quota -g mygroup
Disk quotas for group mygroup (gid 202): none
likewise for the user :-/
I've tried to mount and unmount the device.
The filesystem is jfs, which I suppose is the journaling file system,
which apparantly is required for disk-quota.
I've also tried to simply log in as the user, create files (in total)
larger than the quota I've configured, and .. the system lets this
It feels like I'm doing something fundamentally wrong here, or ..
something is very wrong in the manual (for exampel .. maybe you
configure MegaBytes instead of kiloBytes ?
please .. someone help me out on this one .. .
the entry in the /etc/filesystems look like this ..
dev = /dev/lv01
vfs = jfs
log = /dev/loglv00
mount = true
options = nodev,nosuid,rw
account = false
quota = userquota,groupquota
which seems ok to me ..
the "quota.group" and the "user.group" files are in /mydisk
the quota group look like this ..
/mydisk: blocks in use: 0, limits (soft = 100, hard = 100)
inodes in use: 0, limits (soft = 0, hard = 0)
