Ah, I see now.  I didn’t realize you were talking about quota enforcement.  I thought you were talking about enabling space accounting.   (I guess I was still stuck in the Lustre 1.8 mindset when you had to enable quotas to also get space accounting info.)  Sorry for the confusion.

But I’m glad to hear that you were able to resolve your problem by re-enabling quota enforcement.
