Question quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented

I've installed a Debian Sarge as shown in:
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_sarge_p3

But I always get the following errors:
>quotaon -avug
quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented
quotaon: using //quota.user on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented

I found the following:
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/arc...hp/t-2141.html
But this do not help me
The Server is a RootDS SCSI from Hosteurope.

Does anybody has an idea what I could/should do to get quotas work?

Have you installed quota with the command:

Quote:
apt-get install quota quotatool

Default RE: quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented

Yes, I do exact as in the Howto discribed
apt-get install quota quotatool

I ask Hosteurope about their "usual" preconfiguration and I found the following:
zgrep -i CONFIG_QUOTA /proc/config.gz
# CONFIG_QUOTA is not set
CONFIG_QUOTACTL=y

I wonder that the Quota Support seems to be not in the usual setup...
What can I do to activate it, do I realy have to compile a new kernel or can I fix it by changing something inside a conf-file?

Beside: till, I read so many answers of you, do you never sleep or do you have build up some clones
Thanks for so much help

Question RE: quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented

OK, I build a new kernel
http://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...h08s05.html.en
and activate Quotas.

I reboot with the new Kernel and same as before:
>quotaon -avug
quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented
quotaon: using //quota.user on /dev/sda3 [/]: Function not implemented

zgrep -i CONFIG_QUOTA /proc/config.gz
# CONFIG_QUOTA is not set
CONFIG_QUOTACTL=y

I have never had problems with quotas but this time...
I do not know what to try next, anybody out there with an idea?

Is it a virtual server, or a "real" one?

It's a real one (Hosteurope HE Server L), Dell Intel P4 2,8, 80GB SATA (Debian shows them as SCSI? -> sda3)

I've found out that the Kernel config at /boot has quota set to yes but the running Kernel (/proc/config.gz) shows quota not set...?

The solution finaly was simple...
A Hosteurope coworker told me that they think it is normal to do not install a Kernel wich supports quotas...
The real problem, I think is the special Hardware from Dell, wich need a couple of special drivers.
They told me that the change of the Kernel, wich I can't do by myself because of the Dell drivers I could not find (they are only available for Dell customers, I think), will produce costs. After some phonecalls they do it without computation...
Now everything works and my opinion about Dell is still the same...
Thanks everybody for the Help

That's pretty short-sighted of them... Get yourself a Hetzner server next time.
