Description aspa 2002-11-13 17:46:46 UTC
Description of Problem:
filesystem quotas don't seem to be working on LVM logical volume filesystems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-smp-2.4.18-17.8.0

How Reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a ext3 filesystem on LVM logical volume
2. mount filesystem with user and group quota
3. /sbin/quotacheck -v -F vfsv0 /home

Actual Results:
quotacheck: Cannot get quotafile name for /dev/Volume00/LogVol03

Expected Results:
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/hda7 [/home] done
quotacheck: Checked 22 directories and 58 files

aquota.user should be created.

Additional Information:

Comment 1 aspa 2002-11-15 07:37:55 UTC
after creating the quota files with touch (aquota.{user|group}) the quotacheck
command didn't give the 'Cannot get quotafile name' message as before but
when booting the system i still got the following error messages even
though the quota files exist:

Enabling local filesystem quotas:  quotaon: Cannot find quota file on /home
[/dev/Volume00/LogVol03] to turn quotas on/off.
quotaon: Cannot find quota file on /home [/dev/Volume00/LogVol03] to turn
quotas on/off.
quotaon: Cannot find quota file on /var [/dev/Volume00/LogVol01] to turn quotas
on/off.
quotaon: Cannot find quota file on /var [/dev/Volume00/LogVol01] to turn quotas
on/off.

this got fixed with running '/sbin/quotacheck -ug <fs>' on both
filesystems.
