Hi Kai,

I know what the limits are, and that the program he runs is not related to
the limits.

Let me re-phrase :)

Is it possible, with CentOS (or Linux), to allow a user to only see his file
quotas (user quotas) when he logs in via SSH, instead of the whole server's
disk space?

i.e. when the user logs in, and types df -h, I want him to see something
like this:

root at knocky:[~]$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/cpbackup              20G   15G  4.6G  77% /
root at knocky:[~]$

Is this possible?

Kind Regards
Rudi Ahlers
