       quotaon, quotaoff - turns quota enforcement on or off

       /usr/sbin/quotaon [-guv] file_spec...

       /usr/sbin/quotaon -a  [-guv]

       /usr/sbin/quotaoff [-guv] file_spec...

       /usr/sbin/quotaoff -a  [-guv]

       Turns  on  (with	 quotaon)  or turns off (with quotaoff) quotas for all
       file systems identified in the /etc/fstab file as read/write with  quo‐
       tas.   Turns  on or off group quotas only.  Turns on or off user quotas
       only.  Prints a message for each file system whose quotas are turned on
       or off.

       Specifies  one or more file systems.  Specify any file system by enter‐
       ing its full path name or its mount point. The full path	 name  is  the
       name  entered  in the file-spec field of the file system's entry in the
       /etc/fstab file.	 The mount point is the name entered in the  mnt_point
       field of the file system's entry in the /etc/fstab file.

	      For  UFS file systems, you can alternatively enter the name of a
	      block device special file.  For example: /dev/disk/dsk3c.

	      For AdvFS filesets, you can alternatively enter the  name	 of  a
	      file domain, a pound sign (#), and the name of the fileset.  For
	      example: root_domain#root.

       The quotaon and quotaoff commands enable or disable user and group quo‐
       tas  that  have been established using the edquota command. To turn the
       quotas on or off, the file systems specified must  have	the  userquota
       and  groupquota	entries	 in  the /etc/fstab file and be mounted at the

       quotaon and quotaoff must be run by a user with superuser authority.

       These commands expect each  file	 system	 to  have  quota  files	 named
       quota.user  and	quota.group  in the root directory of the file system.
       (These default file locations  may  be  overridden  in  the  /etc/fstab

       By default,  both user and group quotas are affected by the quotaon and
       quotaoff commands. Use the -g option to specify only  group  quotas  or
       the -u option to specify only user quotas.

       The  term  file	system represents either a UFS file system or an AdvFS

       The quotaon and quotaoff commands are used to  manage  user  and	 group
       quotas:	 they  are  not	 used to manage AdvFS fileset quotas.  Use the
       chfsets command to set or clear fileset quotas.

       AdvFS always maintains user and group file and block usage in the quota
       files  (quota.user and quota.group).  User and group quota limit infor‐
       mation displays with the showfsets command even if quota enforcement is
       turned off.

       When  a	file  system is unmounted, user and group quotas are disabled.
       After a file system has been remounted,	use  the  quotaon  command  to
       enable user and group quotas on the file system.

       You must be the root user to run the quotaon and quotaoff commands.
