i hav set up an LTSP network using suse 10.2 platform and i am trying
to implement quotas for the thin client users

this is the sequence of commands i hav used

-change fstab file
-mount -o remount /home
-init 1
-quotacheck -vguma /home
-init 5
-quotaon /home
-setquota -u user 51200 51200 0 0 /home
((grace period 7days))

now if user boots up the thin client, quotas work fine
suppose user utilizes entire disk space allocated to it (ie. 51200)
it does not allow user to exceed the quota

user deletes all the data it has saved previously
so now data stored on the users account is zero.

nopw if user tries to save any data ...reply comes that quota for the user is even though if there is no data saved on the user account
user cannot save any data

Have you tried to re-run quotacheck to update the aquota.usr file? Also, are you sure the user's data no longer exists? Perhaps it's in the Trash.
