QUOTAON(8)		  BSD 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 disk quotas turned	off.  The filesystem must be
     mounted and it must have the appropriate mount option file	located	at its
     root, the .quota.ops.user file for	user quota configuration, and the
     .quota.ops.group file for group quota configuration.  Quotaon also	ex-
     pects each	filesystem to have the appropriate quota data files located at
     its root, the .quota.user file for	user data, and the .quota.group	file
     for group data.  These filenames and their	root location cannot be	over-
     ridden.  By default, quotaon will attempt to enable both user and group
     quotas.  By default, quotaoff will	disable	both user and group quotas.

     Available options:

     -a	     If	the -a flag is supplied	in place of any	filesystem names,
	     quotaon/quotaoff will enable/disable any filesystems with an ex-
	     isting mount option file at its root.  The	mount option file
	     specifies the types of quotas that	are to be configured.

     -g	     Only group	quotas will be enabled/disabled.  The mount option
	     file, .quota.ops.group, must exist	at the root of the filesystem.

     -u	     Only user quotas will be enabled/disabled.	 The mount option
	     file, .quota.ops.user, must exist at the root of the filesystem.

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

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

     Quotas for	both users and groups will automatically be turned on at
     filesystem	mount if the appropriate mount option file and binary data
     file is in	place at its root.

FILES
     Each of the following quota files is located at the root of the mounted
     filesystem.  The mount option files are empty files whose existence indi-
     cates that	quotas are to be enabled for that filesystem.

     .quota.user       data file containing user quotas
     .quota.group      data file containing group quotas
     .quota.ops.user   mount option file used to enable	user quotas
     .quota.ops.group  mount option file used to enable	group quotas
