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

NAME
     quotaon, quotaoff -- turn file system quotas on and off

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

DESCRIPTION
     The quotaon utility announces to the system that disk quotas should be
     enabled on	one or more file systems.  The quotaoff	utility	announces to
     the system	that the specified file	systems	should have any	disk quotas
     turned off.  The file systems specified must have entries in /etc/fstab
     and be mounted.  The quotaon utility expects each file system 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	supplied in place of any file system names, quotaon/quotaoff
	     will enable/disable all the file systems 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/dis-
	     abled.

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

     -v	     Cause quotaon and quotaoff	to print a message for each file sys-
	     tem where quotas are turned on or off.

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

FILES
     quota.user	  at the file system root with user quotas
     quota.group  at the file system root with group quotas
