User quota for drives > 2TB


Hello.. I am trying to setup userquota for a 12TB drive (EFI GPT). However when I edit the fstab file to add usrquota and remount the partition it does not get enabled, and when I issue quotacheck on this partition it states:

Code:
"Cannot find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option."
In the fstab file I noticed that the drive was labelled as "xfs" type

Code:
dev/sdc1            /raid                xfs        defaults,usrquota     0 0
Is that correct, am I assigning the correct file system type in the fstab file?

Please run the "quotaoff -a" before "quotacheck -cum"
