I know this is a question that has been asked before but I'm still floundering. The following command fails with disk quota exceeded messages
vzctl create 1 --ostemplate rhel-4.4-i386 
Cannot write: Disk Qouta exceeded


I've tried using the vzctl set -1 diskspace 100000000:150000000 --save but as the VE is not set up this fails

Similarly, I cannot edit the /etc/sysconfig/vz-scripts/1.conf file as again this does not get created until after the VE exists.
Any ideas on how to get round this one

Thanks
Paul

There is a disk quota set for this partition — it has nothing to do with OpenVZ Smile

Hi,
Thanks for this but there's no quotas set on this filesystem. I think it is something that I need to set / change on OpenVZ
Cheers

Here is the entry in /var/log/messages which I receive on running the vzctl create command

Nov 28 14:32:16 titan kernel: VZ QUOTA: disk softlimit exceeded for id=1
Nov 28 14:32:16 titan kernel: VZ QUOTA: disk quota softlimit expired for id=1


I think my question is more along the lines of - when running vzctl create for the first time which config file is being read if any? Or if it is not a config file where does vz get its info about quotas

Thanks
Paul

Default config for VEs being created is taken from /etc/vz/conf/ve-NAME.conf-sample, where NAME is a value of CONFIGFILE variable from /etc/vz/vz.conf.

Splendid. That was the fellow

Changing the parameters in ve-vps.basic.conf-sample to be
#DISKSPACE="1048576:1153434"
DISKSPACE="100000000:150000000"


and re-running the vzctl create command meant a subsequent look at the quotas now reflects a much larger disk quota

[root@titan conf]# cat /proc/vz/vzquota
qid: path            usage      softlimit      hardlimit       time     expire
1: /home/vz/private/1.tmp
  1k-blocks         489856      100000000      150000000          0          0
     inodes           6010         200000         220000          0          0


Thanks very much for your help
