Description Dave Hala 2001-10-09 11:37:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT)

Description of problem:
On Boot Quota's should be turned on and the aquota.user or quota.user file 
should be created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed quota-3.01pre9-0.7.1.i386.rpm and initscripts-5.84-1.i386.rpm
2. added "usrquota" in fstab for /dev/md3 and /dev/md4
3. rebooted


Actual Results:  Quotaon reports "using /home/quota.user" No such file or 

Expected Results:  The appropiate quota file would be created, and quota's 

Additional info:

  Running quotacheck from the console automatically creates the 
aquota.user file, but on reboot Quotaon says that it can't 
find "/home/quota.user" or "/var/quota.user" It seems to look for 
quota.user when aquota.user exists.  After doing a touch "quota.user" in 
each filesystem and a reboot, Quotaon reports "Invalid Argument"

Below is my fstab.
