You may be wondering why you are getting an error similar to this when you login:
quota: error while getting quota from ifs-x410.cbls.ccr.buffalo.edu:/ifs/user for <your_username> : Connection refused
Some users have remnants of old quota commands in their login files. Please check your .bashrc and .bash_profile to see if you have any quota commands listed. It may look something like this:
# check for overquota messages
If you've got any quota commands in your login files, remove them! Check out this knowledgebase article for how to check your quota
Do you have two-factor authentication enabled?
There is a known bug in the Red Hat authentication system that prevents the usage of kinit. Until this is resolved, users with two-factor authentication enabled are unable to use the iquota commands. We are in the process of building this information into Coldfront. In the meantime, please submit a help ticket and a CCR staff member will provide quota information for you. Thank you for your patience!
