      quotacheck - file system quota consistency checker

      /usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F FStype] [-V]
	   [-o specific-options] filesystem ...

      /usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F FStype] [-V]
	   [-o specific-options] -a

      The quotacheck command examines each file system, builds a table of
      current disk usage, and compares this table against that stored in the
      disk quota file for the file system.  If any inconsistencies are
      detected, both the quota file and the current system copy of the
      incorrect quotas are updated.

      quotacheck expects each file system to be checked to have a file named
      quotas in the root directory.  If none is present, quotacheck reports
      an error and ignores the file system.  quotacheck is normally run at
      mount time from start-up scripts.

      filesystem represents a mount point or block special device such as

      quotacheck recognizes the following options:

	   -F Fstype	  Specify the file system type on which to operate
			  (see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)).  If this option
			  is not included on the command line, then the file
			  system type is determined from the file /etc/fstab
			  by matching filesystem with an entry in that file.
			  If there is no entry in /etc/fstab, then the file
			  system type is determined from the file

	   -V		  Echo the completed command line, but perform no
			  other action.	 The command line is generated by
			  incorporating the user-specified options and other
			  information derived from /etc/fstab.	This option
			  allows the user to verify the command line.

	   -o specific-options
			  Specify options specific to each file system type.
			  specific-options is a list of suboptions and/or
			  keyword/attribute pairs intended for a FStype-
			  specific module of the command.  See the file
			  system specific man pages for a description of the
			  specific-options supported, if any.

	   -a		  Obtain list of file systems to check from
			  /etc/fstab.  Only mounted rw (or default) type
			  file systems with the quota option are checked.

    Environment Variables
      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is set to the
      empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each
      unspecified or empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to
      the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      quotacheck behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to
      "C".  See environ(5).

    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

      quotacheck was developed by HP and the University of California,

      /etc/default/fs	       Specifies the default file system type
      /etc/fstab	       Default list of file systems to check
      /etc/mnttab	       Mounted file system table
      directory/quotas	       Quota statistics static storage for file
			       system where directory is the file system
			       root as specified to the mount command (see

      fs_wrapper(5), mount(1M), quota(5), quotacheck_hfs(1M),
