Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to install the quota system on SunOS. A small example would be great, or a URL where to get help. Thanks!

In your /etc/fstab or /etc/vfstab find the filesystem that you want to add quotas to and in the last entry add a rq.  i.e.

/dev/dsk/c0t3d0s0  /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s0  /export/home  ufs 5 yes rq

Then

1. cd /export/home (or what ever dir. you are adding quota to)
2. touch quota
3. chmod 600 quota
4. quotaon /export/home (or whatever)
 
now just use edquota to change the user quotas as needed
