-a Turns on (with quotaon) or turns off (with quotaoff) quotas for all
file systems identified in the /etc/fstab file as read/write with quo-
-g Turns on or off group quotas only.
-u Turns on or off user quotas only.
-v Prints a message for each file system whose quotas are turned on or
Specifies one or more file systems. Specify any file system by enter-
ing its full path name or its mount point. The full path name is the
name entered in the file-spec field of the file system's entry in the
/etc/fstab file. The mount point is the name entered in the mnt_point
field of the file system's entry in the /etc/fstab file.
For UFS file systems, you can alternatively enter the name of a block
device special file. For example: /dev/disk/dsk3c.
For AdvFS filesets, you can alternatively enter the name of a file
domain, a pound sign (#), and the name of the fileset. For example:
The quotaon and quotaoff commands enable or disable user and group quotas
that have been established using the edquota command. To turn the quotas on
or off, the file systems specified must have the userquota and groupquota
entries in the /etc/fstab file and be mounted at the time.
quotaon and quotaoff must be run by a user with superuser authority.
These commands expect each file system to have quota files named quota.user
and quota.group in the root directory of the file system. (These default
file locations may be overridden in the /etc/fstab file.)
By default, both user and group quotas are affected by the quotaon and
quotaoff commands. Use the -g option to specify only group quotas or the -u
option to specify only user quotas.
The term file system represents either a UFS file system or an AdvFS
The quotaon and quotaoff commands are used to manage user and group quotas:
they are not used to manage AdvFS fileset quotas. Use the chfsets command
to set or clear fileset quotas.
AdvFS always maintains user and group file and block usage in the quota
files (quota.user and quota.group). User and group quota limit information
displays with the showfsets command even if quota enforcement is turned
When a file system is unmounted, user and group quotas are disabled. After
a file system has been remounted, use the quotaon command to enable user
and group quotas on the file system.
You must be the root user to run the quotaon and quotaoff commands.
