The quotactl man page says this:
     Currently quotas are supported only for the ``ufs'' filesystem.  For
     ``ufs'', a command is composed of a primary command (see below) and a
     command type used to interpret the id. Types are supported for interpre-
     tation of user identifiers and group identifiers.  The ``ufs'' specific
     commands are:

This is incorrect; it is the ffs, not ufs. ufs is a hanger-on from the days
when there was just one unix filesystem. In fact, quotas will not work with
"ufs" in /etc/fstab--it must say ffs for quotacheck to run properly on my

man quotactl :-)

As far as I know, change all occurrences of "ufs" to "ffs". I'm not really
familiar with the filesystem stuff, though, so I could be wrong.
