I've a problem while trying to enable quotas using "quotaon -a".

The error message is every time:

quotaon: using //quota.user on /dev/hda3 [/]: Invalid argument

quotacheck is running without errors and is generating "aquota.user".

Is there any option/config possibility to say the server to generate quota.user and not aquota.user?

Or any idea what to do?
