Take care about quota package. If your master-node is outdated, then you might run into an issue with disk quotas as soon as you upgrade to CentOS 5.9.

Previously, quota utilities could not recognize the file system as having quotas enabled and refused to operate on it due to incorrect updating of /etc/mtab. This update prefers /proc/mounts to get a list of file systems with enabled quotas. Now, quota utilities recognize file systems with enabled quotas as expected.

I had only a problem with the quota package as Alex said.
There is a simple fix for it:
Code:
ln -s /dev/xvda2 /dev/root; /sbin/quotaoff -a; /sbin/quotacheck -avugm; /sbin/quotaon -a;

@Petertjuh360,

I guess you running a XEN VPS, don't you?
I've got no /dev/xvda2 in a OpenVZ container.
