Virtual Server Mail Problem

I have 2 Vps with 2 licenses of Virtualmin, where in the first and 'installed Linux Ubuntu 10.04.3 Server everything works fine, the second server when I try to import a domain after backup, everything goes well but saved mail folders disappear and there is only "inbox" with all the mails arrive, to be short the internal configuration of the mail lost if I go to edit the user account "quita disk" and "Use dimension" and 'missing and also lacks the option "share home directory. "

Attaching photos ... Can you help me?

Closed (fixed)


Howdy -- there are a few possible causes for that.

The first thing I'd like to do is verify that disk quotas are enabled and working properly.

Can you paste in the output you receive when you go into System Settings -> Re-Check Config?

thanks for everything, I looked in the position shown and actually appears to me this "/ Linux Native Filesystem /dev/root User and Group Quotas Inactive Enable Quotas "

so it is inactive how can I solve the problem??

Many thanks


of course I tried to enable it through the function key but to no effect


What kind of VPS are you using? For example, is it Xen, KVM, or OpenVZ?

And what is the output of the command mount?

the hypervisor is Esxi the Output of command Mount is :

/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=continue,barrier=1,data=writeback,usrquota,grpquota)
devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=6149124k,nr_inodes=1537281,mode=755)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,mode=600)
none on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)

none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime)

i've the same problem whit Centos 6.4 and Ubuntu 12.04

i've olso a Vps under Hypervisro Xen server 6 and everything works well... this is the disk report under virtualmin : Photo1

This instead these configurations where the quota is 'disable Photo2 Is Ubuntu server 12.04 Lts Photo3 is Centos 6.4

On your Ubuntu system that's not working properly, what output do you receive if you run this command as root:

/etc/init.d/quota start

this is the output

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

Hmm, that's unusual -- the mount command shows that your root filesystem is on /dev/root, but that device doesn't actually seem to exist.

The quota tools need /dev/root to exist in order to work properly.

What is the output of these commands:

cat /etc/fstab
cat /etc/mtab
df -h
ls -l /dev/root

this is the output:

cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda1 / ext3 grpquota,usrquota,rw 0 1
/dev/sda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
dev /dev devtmpfs rw 0 0

cat /etc/mtab

rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev/root / ext3 rw,relatime,errors=continue,barrier=1,data=writeback,usrquota,grpquota 0 0

none /run/lock tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,size=5120k 0 0
none /run/shm tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime 0 0

df -h

ls -l /dev/root

ls: cannot access /dev/root: No such file or directory

Hmm, that's pretty unusual -- I'm not sure how it's using a device for the root filesystem that doesn't actually exist... however, I suspect that by creating a symlink, that we may be able to get the quotas working.

To do that, run this command as root:

ln -s /dev/sda1 /dev/root

Once you do that, are you then able to enable the quotas?

I had already 'adopted ores solution and the share is abilitava, but when I reboot the machine returned diable, and still had problems with the import of the backup, and this' problem vps OVH I read that others had found this thing

If that symlink goes away after rebooting, you may need to add that command into your /etc/rc.local file.

I would suggest adding these two lines into your /etc/rc.local:

ln -s /dev/sda1 /dev/root
/etc/init.d/quota start

the problem 'in the creation of VPS ovh.........not 'can do anything

thanks for the help
