Description Petr Pisar 2010-05-06 11:18:55 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #395301 +++

From the warnquota man page:
warnquota checks the disk quota for each filesystem and mails a warning message
 to  those users who have reached their softlimit.

This however does not work for nfs based mounts using quotas. This was reported
  by a customer.

The support for NFS is disabled in the warnquota code. To confirm this, I posted
a note to the forum on the quota sourceforge.net page and got the confirmation
that it is not supported over NFS and no plans exist currently to add support.

A change instead was made to the warnquota man page to make it clear that
warnquota works only for local filesystems.


Can engineering please change the man page to make it clear that the warnquota
utility only works for local filesystems.
