Please wait...checking for disk quotas

Hi guys,

When I try to log on a Unix Workstation with telnet, the login process freeze at "Please wait...checking for disk quotas". This station never done that before??? What could have been happend and what can I do to remove those quotas???

Thanks

Hi,

if you don't want (need) quota checking you can do:

chmod ugo-x /usr/bin/quota /usr/sbin/edquota

Re: Please wait...checking for disk quotas

Are you using NFS to mount any filesystems on this machine? If so, make sure NFS is working. If the machine can not talk to the NFS server then you will see this behavior.
