QUOTAON(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 QUOTAON(8)



NAME
       quotaon, quotaoff - turn file system quotas on and off

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/quotaon [ -v ] filesystem...
       /usr/etc/quotaon [ -av ]

       /usr/etc/quotaoff [ -v ] filesystem...
       /usr/etc/quotaoff [ -av ]

DESCRIPTION
   quotaon
       quotaon  announces  to the system that disk quotas should be enabled on
       one or more file systems.  The file systems specified must  be  mounted
       at  the  time.  The file system quota files must be present in the root
       directory of the specified file system and be named quotas.

   quotaoff
       quotaoff announces to the system that  file  systems  specified  should
       have any disk quotas turned off.

OPTIONS
   quotaon
       -a     All  file  systems  in  /etc/fstab marked read-write with quotas
              will have their quotas turned on.  This is normally used at boot
              time to enable quotas.

       -v     Display  a  message for each file system where quotas are turned
              on.

   quotaoff
       -a     Force all file systems in /etc/fstab to have their  quotas  dis-
              abled.

       -v     Display a message for each file system affected.

       These  commands update the status field of devices located in /etc/mtab
       to indicate when quotas are on or off for each file system.
