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

NAME
     quotaon, quotaoff -- turn filesystem 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
     Quotaon announces to the system that disk quotas should be	enabled	on one
     or	more filesystems.  Quotaoff announces to the system that the specified
     filesystems should	have any disk quotas turned off.  The filesystems
     specified must have entries in /etc/fstab and be mounted.	Quotaon
     expects each filesystem 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 filesystem names, quotaon/quotaoff
	     will enable/disable all the filesystems 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 filesystem
	     where quotas are turned on	or off.

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

FILES
     quota.user	  at the filesystem root with user quotas
     quota.group  at the filesystem root with group quotas
