We have been using OpenVZ for a few months and are really satisfied with 
this project. Thanks a lot.

Neithertheless, we have a problem with one out of three virtual server. 
On this one, the quota system fails. The only difference with the two 
others is the filesystem size that exceed, in this case, 40 gygabites.

It is possible to activate the quota system with a quite small 
filesystem and then to progressively increase its size (with rsync for 
example). But, if we try to directly start (or restart) a server on such 
a big filesystem, it fails with the error :
vzquota : (error) Quota on syscall for 123: Device or resource busy

Is there a size limit for the filesystem of an OpenVZ virtual server, 
with quota enabled?

Thanks for your help.
