    Disk quota questions... (Simple I think)


    Hello all,
    I have disk quotas enabled and in place and all is well...

    What I can't remember is how to edit the quota for all users...

    bash-3.00# quota -u user1
    Disk quotas for user user1 (uid XXXXXX):
    Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace
    /dev/sda1 44 95000 100000 11 0 0

    Like I said, etc/fstab is edited for usrquota... I just need to edit the quota so that all current and new users have a different quota limit.

    no not really... I mean that would give it to all current users... but what about future new accounts??

    For instance, currently I have in /etc/fstab, usrquota on /users and /facstaff (two directories) and I am not the quota expert, but currently the quota is set at 1 gig, normally I would run the quota command and user name and I can adjust the soft and hard limits and so on...

    But when it is being assigned to all users where is it set at?

    Where is the file that these settings are set??

    Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace
    /dev/sda1 44 95000 100000 11 0 0
