quota on ubuntu

whenever i try to enable quota

i get the error:

[email protected]:~# quotacheck -acguvm

quotacheck: Cannot stat() mounted device /dev/root: No such file or directory

quotacheck: Cannot find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.

have tried to deploy centos and debian, i get the same error

tried ln -s /dev/xvda /dev/root

it just breaks on reboot

Putting your error into google returned numerous results, including:

Which suggests creating the symlink at startup, prior to any quota check.

Thank you sleddog for your help, i did check google results before opening this topic here

This file /etc/rc.sysinit does not exist in ubuntu

anyone has a solution ??

file /etc/rc.sysinit does not exit in ubuntu and debian

Why not just set the quota on the right device in the first place?

Adding these two lines to /etc/rc.local right before 'exit 0' worked for me (Ubuntu 14.04) :

# /etc/rc.local

ln -s /dev/xvda /dev/root
/etc/init.d/quota restart

exit 0
