I have quota enabled for /. I have two users currently. quota applies to both users. When add new users say user3. Editing edquota -u user3 won't work? Do i need to run quotacheck after running edquota?

When you say won't work what do you mean? Doesn't enforce? Won't allow you to edit?

If it simply isn't enforcing, which it sounds like it isn't. It's because you haven't re-read in the aquota.user file.

quotacheck -vagum

thanks for you comments -it's not enough to just "edquota" for new user? -- I MUST run quotacheck whenever i add new user . Editing edquota along is not sufficient - is this correct?

Yes this is correct, quotacheck re-loads the user file for the quotas, so until you run quotacheck it won't re-read the aquota.user file, which is what edquota is modifying.
