Any idea what "chk_blk_quota: user quota underflow for user 188 on fileset /usr" means?

Re: chk_blk_quota


this is a message, which comes, even though you do not use quotas and can be ignored.

I think, it is a bug, should have been fixed in 5.1X. May be due to uninitialized counters.

Re: chk_blk_quota

You may want to use the command:

/usr/sbin/quotacheck -ugv /usr

to update the quotafiles of usr_domain#usr. To reduce the occurance of this message you can also add the options userquota,groupquota in the mountoptions used in /etc/fstab.

Re: chk_blk_quota

in case of this message use quotacheck, have a look into the admin guide (documentation cd) which explains it in detail.
