Quota on / partition


I've installed quota on my server, but I cannot initialize it. I did the following:

touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
chmod 600 /aquota.*
mount -o remount /
quotacheck -avugm
quotaon -avug

and I get this error when I try to turn on quota:
quotaon: using //aquota.group on /dev/sda1 [/]: Invalid Argument
quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?
quotaon: using //aquota.user on /dev/sda1 [/]: Invalid Argument
quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?

I tried to create new quota files with quotacheck and the -n parameter but it's still not working.

This is my fstab file

Code:
/dev/sda1               /                       ext3    defaults,usrquota,grpquota        1 1
LABEL=/opt1             /opt                    ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/tmp1             /tmp                    ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/boot1            /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
LABEL=SWAP-sda2         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

Any clue??

Try rerunning quotacheck

Remove the old files. Dont recreate them.

quotacheck -vugmc /

quotaon /

I've removed aquota.user and aquota.group.
Rerunned quotacheck, and the problem remains.
