Establishing quotas for one user or group and then using the
option to duplicate these quotas for other users is the common mechanism used
to initialize quotas for multiple users.
Sets or changes the default grace period for which users may
exceed their soft limits. By default, or when you specify

Specifies a prototypical user or group. A prototypical user
or group has previously-defined, valid quota files that you want to duplicate
for other user or group quota files.
Operations supported by the vedquota command are also supported by the edquota command. See edquota(8). The vedquota command is supported only for backward compatibility with operating system versions earlier than DIGITAL UNIX Version 4.0 and will be retired in a future release of the product.
The vedquota command is a quota editor that allows you to add and modify user and group quotas. Use the vquota command to display the existing quota information. Note that disk quotas are displayed as 1 kilobyte blocks.
For each user or group specified, the vedquota command creates a temporary file with an ASCII representation of the current quotas for that user or group, then invokes an editor to allow you to modify the file. The vi editor is invoked by default. To override the default, specify a different editor for the EDITOR environment variable in your login file.
Setting a hard limit to 0 (zero) indicates that no quota should be imposed. Setting a hard limit to 1 (one) indicates that no allocations should be permitted. Setting a soft limit to 1 (one) with a hard limit of 0 (zero) indicates that allocations should be permitted on only a temporary basis (see the -t option). The current usage information in the file is for informational purposes; only the hard and soft limits can be changed.
For each fileset, the vedquota command creates a temporary file with an ASCII representation of the current grace period for that user or group, then invokes an editor to allow you to modify the grace period. The grace period may be specified in days, hours, minutes, or seconds. Setting a grace period to 0 (zero) indicates that the default grace period should be imposed. Setting a grace period to 1 second indicates that no grace period should be granted. When you exit the editor, vedquota reads the temporary file and modifies the quota.user and quota.group files for the target fileset to reflect the changes made.
Changes in grace periods take effect immediately unless a grace period
is currently in effect. For example, assume a user exceeds a soft limit and
receives a grace period of 7 days. A subsequent change to a grace period
of 1 day will not affect the user's already-invoked grace period, unless the
user drops below the soft limit and exceeds it once again. The default grace
period for a fileset is specified in the
files for the target fileset.
Only filesets listed in the /etc/fstab directory with a userquota,groupquota entry can be edited with the vedquota command.
You must be the root user to edit quotas.
