Lets go over this one more time...
On the host server
I have my LVM mounted to /parts/test
Then I mounted /parts/test/dev/hdv1 to /vservers/test with user quota
Then I turn on the vserver and the mtab in it has usrquota turned on
In the vserver I can run /sbin/quotacheck -avugm and it checks the
quota's but when I run repquota -a it doesn't show any of the users in
Also I get the following in the vserver when trying to run these 2
[root_at_vserver:test /]quotaoff /
quotaoff: quotactl on /dev/hdv1: Operation not permitted
[root_at_vserver:test /]quotaon /
quotaon: using //quota.user on /dev/hdv1: Operation not permitted
did I screw something up here?

You have to create it from the *host-server*, within the vserver's
filesystem space--one of the capabilities that vservers drop is the
to create device-nodes.
host-server% cp -a /dev/sda42 /vservers/alpha/dev/hdv1

You will have to mount it with `usrquota,grpquota' in the host-server.
[Re-]Mount it then copy the line from `host:/etc/mtab' into
`vserver:/etc/mtab' and change the mount-point (`/vservers/alpha/') to
You want a line (in `vserver:/etc/mtab') that looks like:
/dev/hdv1 / ext3 rw,usrquota,grpquota 0 0
