What is the output after running quotacheck -a command. Also show me your /etc/fstab entries.

This is what I get:

root@server [~]# ln -s /dev/xvda /dev/root
root@server [~]# /scripts/fixquotas

Thank you - I will give that a go.

I'm just not sure how the replacement of the CPU would cause these sort of issues ? - Any ideas ?

First, you should check to see if "/dev/root" exists:

If it does not exist, try linking "/dev/xvda" to it via:

ln -s /dev/xvda /dev/root
Then, run the following command:

# /scripts/fixquotas

If you continue to receive the "quotacheck: Quota for users is enabled on mountpoint / so quotacheck might damage the file." message, then it may be wise to consult with a system administrator (rather than forcing the check) to ensure you do not damage your file system

Since a failed CPU was replaced in my server I've been getting the following error message (notification by e-mail each day).

Output from your job 869
repquota: Cannot stat() mounted device /dev/root: No such file or directory
repquota: Cannot stat() mounted device /dev/root: No such file or directory

Any idea what this means and why replacing a component would cause this message ?

Thanks in advance
