System: NetBSD rincewind.asa.co.uk 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (GENERIC) #1: Tue Aug 10 00:03:09 MEST 1999 fvdl@struis:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
The grace period on users quota's are ignored. When a soft quota is
exceded the grace period reported by quota -v is none and the quota
is enforeced as a hard quota straight away.
Turn on user quotas for a disk partition. Edit the user quota limits
for a user on that parttition say 2000000 soft limit, 4000000 hard
limit, and a grace period of 14. Files tothe partition until the soft
limit is reached, at which point no further writes to the parition as
that user will be possible
Only fwork arround I know of at this time is to raise the soft limit
to the value of the hard limit or to turn quota enforcement off.
The problem did not exist on the previous NetBSD-1.2.1 installation.
