Quota's are not set
« on: August 18, 2015, 04:19:25 PM »
I have a problem with an CentOs webpanel installation on CentOs 6.7. We are using 2 virtual dedicated servers to host multiple sites for our clients. One is configured with a additional storage of 2T formatted in the xfs file system. The other isn't. To prevent our users from using to much diskspace we want to use the quota manager.

Unfortunatly the quota's are never set on both machines. When I try to reset them by resaving my packages I get the following error messages for every user that is in this package

Quote
setquota: Only XFS quota format is allowed on XFS filesystem. setquota: Not all specified mountpoints are using quota.

On one server this message makes sense somehow. Because our disk is formatted in XFS. However on the other we don't use an XFS filesystem. I have double checked in the /etc/fstab and it does not say anything about an xfs formatted mount.

For me two question therefore arise.

  • How to make the quota manager work on an XFS filesystem? I have found that you can provide a disk format in the setquota function, but I expect that this should be implemented in the setquota tool
  • How can the other server give an error message about a wrong formatted filesystem

I hope somebody can help me with an answer

Kind Regards,
