NAME

rpc.rquotad − remote quota server

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ −FI ] [ −p port ] [ −s | −S ] [ −x path ]

/usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ −h | −V ]

DESCRIPTION

rpc.rquotad is an rpc(3) server which returns quotas for a user of a local filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over the NFS . It also allows setting of quotas on NFS mounted filesystem (if configured during compilation and allowed by a command line option −S). The results are used by quota(1) to display user quotas for remote filesystems and by edquota(8) to set quotas on remote filesystems. rquotad daemon uses tcp-wrappers library (under service name rquotad) which allows you to specify hosts allowed/disallowed to use the daemon (see hosts.allow(5) manpage for more information). The rquotad daemon is normally started at boot time from the system startup scripts.

OPTIONS

−h, −−help

Show program usage and exit. −V, −−version Show version of quota tools.

−s, −−no-setquota

Don’t allow setting of quotas (default). This option is available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.

−S, −−setquota

Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.

−F, −−foreground

Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes).

−I, −−autofs

Do not ignore autofs mountpoints.

−p port, −−port port

Listen on alternate port port.

−x path, −−xtab path

Set an alternative file with NFSD export table. This file is used to determine pseudoroot of NFSv4 exports. The pseudoroot is then prepended to each relative path (i.e. a path not beginning by ’/’) received in a quota RPC request.

FILES

aquota.user or aquota.group

quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota, non-XFS filesystems)

quota.user or quota.group

quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota, non-XFS filesystems)

/etc/mtab
