creating file /aquota.user and /aquota.group??


Hi

I m using disk quota on my computer on filesystem '/'. I have enabled both usrquota and grpquota in /etc/fstab for mount point /.

But when I reboot the system or remount / using 'mount -o remount' I don't see any /aquota.user or /aquota.group created while according to 'man quotacheck' it says.
.
"quotacheck expects each filesystem to be checked to have quota files named [a]quota.user and [a]quota.group located at the root of the associated filesystem. If a file is not present, quotacheck will create it."

I wanted to know if above works or I HAVE TO create these files on my own before I run quotacheck command.

Please advice.

Thanks & regards,
Deepika

Yeah create aquota.user and aquota.group
# touch /quota.user /quota.group
# chmod 600 /quota.user /quota.group

now reboot in single user mode with no services running

then #quotacheck -c -d -u /dev/hdax

If all goes well you'll find the sizes of /quota.user and /quota.group are no longer zero

now reboot to runlevel 5
