Description of problem:
Issuing the command /etc/init.d/nfs start will start several pieces of NFS
including rpc.rquotad. This component dies shortly after starting.
If root starts rpc.rquotad independently of the nfs init script it remains active.
The upshot is that unless root starts rpc.rquotad, no users on the NFS client
can see their quotas by typing "quota".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.ps -aux |grep rpc.rquotad
I encountered the same problem, plus quotas not working on NFS mounts.
Everything seems to be fixed in the latest quota-tools 3.07
dated 03 september 2002 from sourceforge.net
I am an happy usr of quotas now ;-)
Hope this help.
Thanks for the info - I built the quota package from source and now the problem
Red Hat techs - it's trivial to build this update - I built an rpm using the
quota spec from your 3.03-1 srpm and the new source. Minor tweaks needed to the
spec but I had a working rpm in 15 minutes. This isn't a horrible bug but it's
irritating to those of us who make use of quotas over nfs. Make an official RH
rpm update for this please?
New quota bug #90939 might be interesting. Maybe both could be addressed with
This bug has been fixed with quota-3.06-9.7 as included in RHSA-2003:187-25.
Feel free to close it.
