    informative indeed.. easy to understand

  4. Paul Whitney says:

    What about troubleshooting? I added entries to fstab, remounted, and when I do the grep still shows “noquota”

  5. Santosh says:

    Excellent info. let me know, how can we assign inodes and inodes calculation

  6. Bruce says:

    What would happen if you added quota to /home when its still part of /? Would the quota only affect that specific directory or the whole root file system?

    Dear Pradeep,

    I got following output when edit fstab and after remount

    cat /etc/fstab
    /dev/mapper/centos_ns2-home /home xfs defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 2

    [[email protected] ~]# mount -o remount /home
    [[email protected] ~]# mount | grep /home
    /dev/mapper/centos_ns2-home on /home type xfs (rw,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota)

    [[email protected] ~]# quotacheck -cugv /home
    quotacheck: Mountpoint (or device) /home not found or has no quota enabled.
    quotacheck: Cannot find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.

    What is the reason pls expalin in order to activate quota

      Hi Buddhika,

      Steps mentioned in tutorial is for ext4/ext3 file system but you are trying these steps on xfs file system that’s why you are getting errors.

      We will shortly write an article on XFS quota.
