I have tried to kill repquota process but it is not getting killed.
This issue could be related to a read-only file system or file system corruption.
The following should help to determine if there is a read-only file-system
If the “touch” command fails to create the files it should display an error, such as indicating there is a read-only file system.
You can reboot the server to resolve this.
If you are constantly facing repquota issue on server you can permanently disable the quotas
Run the command
Then remove the entry userquota from fstab, It will help you.
you can make changes in /etc/mtab and /etc/fstab for this.
Then mount it
