Disabling User Quotas

If we ever wish to disable quotas for every user, the easiest way is to remove the quota file and alter the “mount” option in /etc/vfstab, then either remount the device and run quotaoff, or simply reboot the system.

However, if we only want to disable quotas for one particular user, we would run edquota and set the relevant entry back to “0.” This will be taken to mean “unlimited.” For example, the values below would disable all quotas for testuser:

hydrogen# edquota testuser
fs /export/home blocks (soft = 0, hard = 0) inodes (soft = 0,
   hard = 0)
hydrogen#
