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

     quotaon, quotaoff -- turn filesystem quotas on and off

     quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
     quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] -a
     quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
     quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] -a

     quotaon announces to the system that disk quotas should be enabled on one or more filesys-
     tems.  quotaoff announces to the system that the specified filesystems should have any disk
     quotas turned off.  The filesystems specified must have entries in /etc/fstab and be
     mounted.  quotaon expects each filesystem to have quota files named quota.user and
     quota.group which are located at the root of the associated file system.  These defaults may
     be overridden in /etc/fstab.  By default both user and group quotas are enabled.

     Available options:

     -a      If the -a flag is supplied in place of any filesystem names, quotaon/quotaoff will
	     enable/disable all the filesystems indicated in /etc/fstab to be read-write with
	     disk quotas.  By default only the types of quotas listed in /etc/fstab are enabled.

     -g      Only group quotas listed in /etc/fstab should be enabled/disabled.

     -u      Only user quotas listed in /etc/fstab should be enabled/disabled.

     -v      Causes quotaon and quotaoff to print a message for each filesystem where quotas are
	     turned on or off.

     Specifying both -g and -u is equivalent to the default.

     quota.user   at the filesystem root with user quotas
     quota.group  at the filesystem root with group quotas
     /etc/fstab   filesystem table

     quota(1), libquota(3), fstab(5), edquota(8), quotacheck(8), repquota(8)

     The quotaon command appeared in 4.2BSD.
