Bug Fix Advisory quota bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0416-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated quota package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The quota package contains system administration tools for monitoring and
limiting user and group disk usage on file systems.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The setquota and edquota utilities provide the "-r" command line option, which
allows users to set quotas over the remote procedure call (RPC) protocol. Prior
to this update, the usage information for edquota incorrectly stated that this
option can be used along with the "-t" and "-T" command line options to set a
grace period and grace time. With this update, the usage information has been
corrected, and the setquota and edquota utilities have been adapted to report an
error when this combination of options is used. (BZ#638578)

All users of quota are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
