Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have never tried that before but I think the following steps might work:
1. Run quotacheck on the mounted partition. Suppose mounted partition is /opt/data then run: quotacheck -cvug /opt/data (This will create usr.quota and grp.quota files on that partition.
2. Make sure that you enable usrquota and grpquota option in /etc/fstab to reflect that.
3. If you have a backup of user and group quota files from old server then copy it over to /opt/data. This will replace the quota files there and I think it should take the values from old files which you have just placed in the mount point.
