       setquota -T [ -u | -g ] [ -F quotaformat ] name block-grace inode-grace -a | filesystem...

DESCRIPTION

       setquota is a command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group name and  new  quotas
       for  this  filesystem can be specified on the command line. Note that if a number is given
       in the place of a user/group name it is treated as an UID/GID.

       -r, --remote
              Edit also remote quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server to set quota.  This  option
              is  available  only  if  quota tools were compiled with enabled support for setting
              quotas over RPC.

       -m, --no-mixed-pathnames
              Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without  leading  slash  in  the
              path.   rpc.rquotad  uses  this  to  recognize  NFSv4  mounts  and properly prepend
              pseudoroot of NFS filesystem to the path. If you specify this option, setquota will
              always  send  paths with a leading slash. This can be useful for legacy reasons but
              be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if you are using new rpc.rquotad.

       -F, --format=quotaformat
              Perform setting for specified format  (ie.  don't  perform  format  autodetection).
              Possible  format  names  are: vfsold Original quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs,
              vfsv0 Quota format with 32-bit UIDs / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode  usage
              and  limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits and usage, rpc (quota over
              NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -u, --user
              Set user quotas for named user. This is the default.

       -g, --group
              Set group quotas for named group.

       -p, --prototype=protoname
              Use quota settings of user or group protoname to set the quota for the  named  user
              or group.

       --always-resolve
              Always try to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if the name is composed
              of digits only.

       -b, --batch
              Read information to set from stdin (input format  is  name  block-softlimit  block-
              hardlimit  inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit ). Empty lines and lines starting with #
              are ignored.

       -c, --continue-batch
              If parsing of an input line in batch mode fails, continue with processing the  next
              line.

       -t, --edit-period
              Set  grace  times for users/groups. Times block-grace and inode-grace are specified
              in seconds.

       -T, --edit-times
              Alter times for individual user/group when softlimit is enforced. Times block-grace
              and inode-grace are specified in seconds or can be string 'unset'.

       -a, --all
              Go through all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform setting.

       To  disable  a  quota,  set the corresponding parameter to 0. To change quotas for several
       filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem.

       Only the super-user may edit quotas.

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)
