Do you have any error in /var/run/rc.log ?

No. rc.log shows only the three lines.

When I try to disable the quota with 'quotaoff -a', the process goes to a
non-interruptible status, uses 100% CPU and can not be terminted.

Here my fstab:

# NetBSD /targetroot/etc/fstab
# See /usr/share/examples/fstab/ for more examples.
/dev/sd0a               /       ffs     rw,userquota     1 1

I would suggest using the new quota2, though.
See tunefs(8) and fsck_ffs(8)

It was not possible to activate the quota with tunefs. This is because I use a kernel with "#INSECURE". Now I have a kernel with 'INSECURE'. Now you can activate the quota with tunefs. rc.log now looks like this:

[running /etc/rc.d/quota]
Checking quotas:quotacheck: filesystem / has quotas already turned on

Question: Can I use QUOTA2 with a '#INSECURE' kernel?

Is it further necessary to run '/etc/rc.d/quota' at boot or to use the userquota statement in the fstab?

Thank you for your efforts.
