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

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
