AIX - User can't create directory in their own home profile

User can't create a directory under home directory. NIS account.

Here is some outputs below to help out figure what the issue is....

root@nismaster[/]# su - user1
nismaster:/home/user1> mkdir test_dir
mkdir: 0653-358 Cannot create test_dir.
test_dir: Cannot exceed the user or group quota.

root@nismaster[/]# su - user1
nismaster:/home/user1> df .
Filesystem    512-blocks      Free %Used    Iused %Iused Mounted on
nisclient:/home/vg02/user1 134217728  88103128   35%   187475     2% /home/user1

nisclient:/home/user1> df -g |grep user1
/home/vg02/user1     64.00     42.01   35%   187474     2% /home/user1

nfsserver:/> repquota -a |grep user1
user1     +-    10548    10000   150000     none       215        0        0  

Does the output above help?

The third column indicates used space (blocks), the fourth is the soft limit and the next one is the hard limit.
"215 0 0" is the same for the number of files.

Since there is no defined grace period (the time where the hard limit can be used) and since the default is one week it seems that the user has exceeded the quota more than this one week ago and is no longer allowed to use more space.

If your NFS server is AIX and the FS in question is of type jfs2 use "j2edlimit" instead of "edquota" if you want to change the quota setting.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

OK, no group quotas enabled.

Please read my last comment again!

I had to modify it a bit because I didn't realize that there was no grace period!

I'm a bit confused. Can you sum up what you are wanting me to try and what seems to be the issue?
