turns off disk quotas for one or more ufs file systems.

field of the appropriate entries in /etc/mnttab
to indicate when quotas are on or off for each file system.
If quotas are on, the string quota
will be added to mntopts
; if quotas
are off, the quota
string is not present. filesystem
must be either the mount point of a file system, or the block
device on which the file system resides.
