group quota underflow

I found these messages in /var/messages:
Nov 6 17:50:35 mysmpalpha1 vmunix: chk_bf_quota: group quota underflow for group 7 on fileset /
Nov 7 17:49:16 mysmpalpha1 vmunix: chk_bf_quota: group quota underflow for group 7 on fileset /
Nov 27 07:46:46 mysmpalpha1 vmunix: chk_bf_quota: group quota underflow for group 7 on fileset /
What does this mean? Is there something i need to do?

Re: group quota underflow

use the following commands to get rid of the message:

#vi /etc/fstab
add ... userquota,groupquota.... to the the root filesystem entry
# init 0
# boot -fl s
# bcheckrc
# quotacheck -a -v >/usr/tmp/quota.log 2>&1
# vi /etc/fstab
remove the added values

there seems a mismatch within the quota/filesystem informations

Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }

Re: group quota underflow

Hi Ralf,

I think, I remember you saying that his was supposed to stop at 5.X.
Why is that still popping up?
Someone got an old sourcecode? ;-)

Re: group quota underflow

Hi,

make a copy of fstab
#vi /etc/fstab
like:
root_domain#root / advfs rw,userquota,groupquota 0 1
# init 0
shutdown
# boot -fl s
boot single user
# bcheckrc
check and mount local file systems
# quotacheck -a -v >/usr/tmp/quota.log 2>&1
Reports discrepancies between the calculated and recorded disk quotas.
restore old copy of fstab
reboot

greetings,

Michael
