Container fails to start, native quota already running error

On OpenVZ 6, Container fails to start with error:

Starting container…
vzquota : (error) Quota on syscall for id 1590: File exists
vzquota : (error) Native quota is already running for this partition.
vzquota on failed [3]

When checked found, / partition already had quota set.

# mount | grep quota /dev/md1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,usrjquota=aquota.user,jqfmt=vfsv0)

To fix this issue you can do one of following:

  • Disable temporary quotas on the node:

# quotaoff -a

  • Disable quota for / partition in /etc/fstab .
  • Create separate partition for /vz without quota .
