Quota - delete Single Entry
 
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: RIPEMD160

Hello dudes,
After googling for 1 hour i question myself if anybody ever had that
problem ( i found one guy in a forum but he didn't get an answer).
Adding quota information to the quota table isn't a problem
(E.G. quotatool -u 1500 -b -l 1500MB /srv )

BUT if i delete user 1500 (userdel) the quota information still remains
in the quota table commented out: #1500


Is there a way to delete the quota information for a user after having
deleted a user?


King Regards
Christian

That usually means there are still files owned by that userid. Try
"find /path/to/quota/filesystem -xdev -user 1500". Remove or change owner
of any user-1500 files that are found.

Thanks for your answer.

There is no possible way that there are still files owned by that user
because i use the following way to delete that account:
1. userdel 1500
2. rm -rf /srv/HOMEDIR

Please don't top post.

What did "find" show you? There may be temp files, mail files
(since you didn't use "userdel -r") and even deleted files.

Iff "find" shows no files belonging to user 1500, the
quota accounting may be off. Use quotacheck to fix it,
preferable when the system is idle.

of userdel.
userdel -r does the magic i need :)
