I posted a question a few days ago about warnquota, but didn't see any
reply. Maybe, I missed some posts. Here I post my question again.
I enabled quota in my fc3 linux system. The repquota -a reports
the quota usage for all users, and if a user uses more qutoa than the hard
limit, the system does not allow that user to create/modify any file. It
My question is: how to use warnquota to send warning to the
user who's usage exceeds the soft-limit? I set /etc/warnquota.conf as:
MAIL_CMD = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t"
FROM = "root"
SUBJECT = NOTE: You are exceeding your allocated disk space limits
CC_TO = "root at localhost"
MESSAGE = Your disk usage has exceeded the agreed limits\
on this server|Please delete any unnecessary files in your email inbox
and in saved email-folders,\
| e.g. in Sent folder.|Thank you!|
SIGNATURE = root at localhost
All of the above are defaults, I just comment out those for groups.
But, it seems that it does not do anything. How to run warnquota? Do I
need to create my own script to run it? as daemon or as ...?
Thanks a lot!
