 enable_quotas or quota_enable?
Author: Joe Adams

I was enabling quotas via the handbook and trying to figure out how to start quota's on boot rather than having to enter qutoaon.

This article seems to say that

>To ensure quotas are enforced after a reboot, add the following line to /etc/rc.conf:
>quota_enable="YES"
>check_quotas="YES"


Where as the handbook says to use

enable_quotas="YES"
check_quotas="YES"

The hand book also mentions that check_quotas can be quite time consuming and that you may want to skip this step.

Question 1) is it quota_enable or enable_quota ?
Question 2) what is the best way to start 'quotaon' when the machine boots to make sure that quotas are implemented?
