    Setting quota_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf and after that /etc/rc.d/quota restart (or start, stop) got error:
# /etc/rc.d/quota restart
usage: quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] -a
quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] -a
quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
Checking quotas: done.
Enabling quotas: done.

Setting default values for variables quotaon_flags, quotacheck_flags and quotaoff_flags to "-a" will eliminate this error message and automatically complete for all fs with quota support described in /etc/fstab.

    Set quota_enable to "YES" in /etc/rc.conf, and execute /etc/rc.d/quota start.
    Included patch sets default values for variable $quotaon_flags, $quotacheck_flags and $quotaoff_flags to "-a".
