Facing problem while setting user's quota on the nfs mounted folder .

Hi Friends

I'm facing problem while setting quota on the nfs mounted folder on server2 m/c.

Sharing /users folder of Server1 m/c via nfs for Server-2 users .

Server-1 having ip XXX.XXX.XX.129 details :->

Step 1 :-
vi /etc/exports
/users XXX.XXX.XX.131(rw)

Step 2 :-
service nfs restart

Step 3 :-
service iptables stop

Step 4 :-
chmod 7757 /users

Server-2 having ip add XXX.XXX.XX.131 details :-

I have mounted /users folder of Server-1 m/c to /client_user folder of Server-2 m/c.

Step 1 :-
service nfs restart

Step 2 :-
vi /etc/fstab
XXX.XXX.XX.129:/users /Client_user nfs defaults,usrquota 0 0

Step 3 :-
mount -o remount /client_user

Here, I'm getting error mentioned as below :-
"Unsupported nfs mount option : usrquota

Please suggest how can set user quota for Server-2 users on this nfs mounted folder "/client_user" .

Thanks in advance !!

If you look here &, it would appear usrquota is not an nfs client option.
I believe that if the quotas are set on the server (which is where the files really are anyway), that should be sufficient.

You may find this mailing list page useful. The person replying outlines setting up quotas on the underlining filesystem, and which options are needed to edit quotas remotely.
