root@rttbox ~]# vzquota off 1200
vzquota : (error) Quota off syscall for id 1200: Device or resource busy
vzquota : (error)     Possible reasons:
vzquota : (error)     - Container's root is not unmounted
vzquota : (error)     - there are opened files inside container's root/private area
vzquota : (error)     - your current working directory is inside a container directory
vzquota : (error)       root/private area
[root@rttbox ~]# vzctl start 1200
Container is already running
[root@rttbox ~]# vzquota on 1200
vzquota : (warning) Quota is running for id 1200 already
 


The above is what happens when everything is fine but it takes a long time for the quota update to complete, such after a live migration etc... you know it is often the case when the normal tricks don't work:

eg. removing the .lck file, turning quota on and off.
