Is this filesystem of type "xfs" or "nfs"? If it is of type
NFS, then you will need to build your quota tools with the
"configure --enable-rpcsetquota=yes" option in order to allow
remote quota setting for NFS.

Can you give more details here? Do you see an error message
or is the problem that after "edquota"/"setquota" running the
"repquota" command doesn't report the limits?
If it's the second case, then the problem is likely that the
user doesn't have any inodes/blocks allocated, in which case
repquota will skip this user even if he has limits assigned,
To check if this is the case, touch a file as the user, and
then run repquota again ... "repquota -v" might also provide
this information, even if no blocks are allocated for a user
- I can't remember just off the top of my head.
