Quotas Hard Limit Problem Groups
Quotas Hard Limit Problem Groups (slackware 13)
Hi, I have setup group quotas on a particular file system.
I can setup the soft limit, hard limit, and grace period for a particular group.
I made sure quotas are running by issuing quotaon and quotaoff commands.
When I login as a user of that group that has a soft/hard limit set I can add files to the file system. When I do this I can run repquota and see the “used” column amount grow.
When the used amount gets to be greater than the soft limit I see my grace period number show up. I can continue to add files to the file system past the soft limit.
The problem I have is that I can continue to save files past the hard limit.
My soft limit is below my hard limit by 5%. I have tried various values for my soft hard limits without any luck. I have tried various grace periods from days to seconds. After my grace period is over I can still continue to add files past the hard limit.
What am I doing wrong?
