Hi all,Over the last few days I have been attempting to set up user quotas on a server used for backing up data. after enabling usrquota in /etc/fstab, I went to install the quota and quotatool packages via apt-get, however I was¬*greeted¬*with nice error message from dpkg while configuring quota:
Setting up quota (4.00~pre1-6) ...Checking quotas...quotacheck: Cannot guess format from filename on /dev/xvdb1. Please specify format on commandline.done.Turning on quotas...quotaon: cannot find /backups/quota.group on /dev/xvdb1 [/backups]

anybody know what I might have done wrong?Jacob MansfieldProgrammer
