    Quotacheck

    When I try "quotacheck -avugm" as part of the tutorial for Debian Sarge ( http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_sarge ), I get the following error:

    quotacheck: can't find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.

    nevermind . . . I figured it out.

    Hello,

    Have you modifiy the file /etc/fstab ?
    Have you create the files [font=Courier New, Courier, mono]/quota.user /quota.group ?[/font]
    Have you remount the partition / ([font=Courier New, Courier, mono]mount -o remount /[/font]) ?

    Thanks

    It works now. There was a syntax error when I added ",usrquota,grpquota" to /etc/fstab. Sorry.

    quotacheck -avugm

    After this command mount -o remount /
    restart your server with command shutdown -r now [enter]
    After system restarts you can type in quotacheck -avugm [enter] it will scan and be done.

    Bad Syntax

    rebooting didn't work for me..

    i had the same problem, basically its a bad syntax, when i first started to edit the file, i just added ",usrquota,grpquota " after "defaults" but for some reason it gives me the error when i tried to run the quotacheck -avugm. so what i did was removed all the spaces and replaced them with tabs..
    example:

    AFTER I DELETED ALL SPACES AND TABS:
    LABEL=//ext3defaults,usrquota,grpquota11

    AFTER ADDING TABS AND SPACES:
    LABEL=/ [tab] / [tab] ext3 [tab] defaults,usrquota,grpquota [tab] 1[space]1

    NOTE: DO NOT type [tab] or [space]

    it should look something like this:
    LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1

    (my example is for Fedora 3)

    It should look like this (on Debian):

    Code:
    /dev/hda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro,usrquota,grpquota 0       1
    I guess you have a / too much in your line.
