ahh, now I understand ...

okay first make sure that you use static/fixed
context numbers for your vservers (otherwise
some nice surprises are waiting for you)

(nomenglature: [P] Physical, [V] Virtual)

now enable quota (usrquota, grpquota and ctxquota)
on that shared partition (mount entries), and
after [P] quotacheck -vmaugx you should be able to
look at user, group and context quota from [P]

changing context quota with edquota should now
be possible, and after [P] quotaon this quota
will be tracked and enforced ...

then start one or two servers on your shared
partition (/vservers) and look at the [P] quota
and how it changes ...

because this is designed to work on 'shared' data
initially all files in a vserver belong to ctx-0
and automagically migrate to ctx-N when written
to ...


PS: you are the second person using this
stuff (not including myself), so I will soon
start to write the missing howto ;)
