Solution
Usually we use remount option with quota command to enable quota which doesn’t work and generates the error message.
For this, we need to umount and mount the partition back.

A. Not working Solution

[root@ngelinux ~]# mount -o remount,uquota,gquota,pquota /Test/
[root@ngelinux ~]# mount | grep -i Test
/dev/sdb1 on /Test type xfs (rw,relatime,seclabel,attr2,inode64,noquota)
[root@ngelinux ~]# 

 

B. Working Solution

[root@ngelinux ~]# umount /Test/
[root@ngelinux ~]# mount -o quota /dev/sdb1 /Test/
[root@ngelinux ~]# mount | grep -i Test
/dev/sdb1 on /Test type xfs (rw,relatime,seclabel,attr2,inode64,usrquota)
[root@ngelinux ~]#
