User quota

Hi,
I want to apply the user quota, but i am unable to apply the quota to user.
Kindly provide the guide line, so that i can sortout the problem.

Step 1: Create partion on device
#fdisk /dev/sda (because hard disk is scsi)
#n (new partition table) i.e /dev/sda8.
#p ( to print the partition table )
#w ( write )
#partprobe
#mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda8
After that i am creating a folder in / (/deepak)

#mount -t /dev/sda8 /deepak then i got error.
#touch /deepak/aquota.user
then i got error. i.e.
[root@nms ~]# touch /deepak/aquota.user
[root@nms ~]# quotacheck -ufm /deepak/
quotacheck: WARNING - Quotafile /deepak/aquota.user was probably truncated. Can't save quota settings...


Thanks in advance
Tapan

you got an error for doing a mount -t without specifying the file system type. I have said this before, READ YOUR ERRORS. They exist to inform you.

Linux File System Quotas
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...ge_with_Quotas is good as well, maybe even better

About 10 seconds in google would solve your problems. Please understand, I am not trying to single you out, but people usually come here when they have little other recourse and it seems you are not interested in figuring out the solutions to your problems because you do not read the error messages, but instead simply state "Oh, there was some random error." They are not random.

If you have an issue, try a search engine for what you are trying to do.

You will need to create the aquota files for that file sytsem, quotaon, edquota etc and while we do help here, we don't hold hands and do everything for you.
