HP-UX Disk Quotas not being applied to a single user

I'm in the middle of testing the disk quotas implementation in my DEV environment, so far what has been done is:

  • Turned on the disk quotas.
  • Edited the template file for quotas.
  • Applied this quota to three different users for testing purposes.

My problem is that everything seems to work fine but for one user, as shown below:

Template

Disk quotas for user user1 (uid 160092752):
Filesystem      usage      quota         limit               timeleft   files   quota   limit timeleft
/home             54            10240        12288                            22       0         0
/DI_Data_AU1 1               20971520  104857600                  1          0         0

fs /DI_Data_AU1  blocks time limit = 1.00 day, files time limit = 0.00 day
fs /home              blocks time limit = 1.00 day, files time limit = 0.00 day

User2 has clearly exceeded the quota soft limit, the clock never starts counting and is able to write on disk as if nothing happened. While User3 and User4 are correctly being restricted since the clok started and 24 hours have passed since so their time is expired and they're not able to write on disk anymore.

Any ideas what might be happening with User2?

Thanks.
