Hi there,

I must say I haven't tried with quotas, but without quotas OpenVZ can 
handle it perfectly.
My container has DISK_QUOTA="no" set, and it can use my 5 TB perfectly:

# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vzfs             4.8T  2.2T  2.7T  45% /

So I guess you should look into the limits of the quota support.
