    Default Problem turning quota on

    Is giving me this error at the system boot; quotaon: using //aquota.user on /dev/sda2 [/] Invalid Argument.
    I look on the boot.msg file and found that /dev/sda2 not shows in the mounting file system section.
    But when I manually try to mount tells me this device is already mounted. But in the case of /dev/sda3 the quota is turned on perfectly. Any clues

    Hi,

    Double check that you are following exactly the procedure stated in section 5.3.5 Managing Quotas (page 74) of the the Open Suse 11.1 Start-Up guide, which can be found here:

    Look it happens that at boot cant turned on quota on the / partition but it did on /srv partition. And show this messages

    quotaon: using //aquota.group on /dev/sda2 [/]: Invalid argument
    quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?
    quotaon: using //aquota.user on /dev/sda2 [/]: Invalid argument
    quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?
    /dev/sda3 [/srv]: group quotas turned on
    /dev/sda3 [/srv]: user quotas turned on

    The quotas seem to be ok on /srv but not on /

    But after boot I run this commands

    mount -o remount /
    quotacheck -avugm
    quotaon -avug

    And I got turn quota On the / partition the messages are:

    /dev/sda2 [/]: group quotas turned on
    /dev/sda2 [/]: user quotas turned on
    /dev/sda3 [/srv]: group quotas device is busy
    /dev/sda3 [/srv]: user quotas device is busy


    Why?
