Hi David,

fs lq returns useful error codes:

[kim@angel bo]$ fs lq
Volume Name                   Quota      Used %Used   Partition
user.k.kim                 no limit  23928220    0%         60%
[kim@angel bo]$ echo $?
[kim@angel bo]$ cd /
[kim@angel /]$ fs lq
Volume Name                   Quota      Used %Used   Partition
fs: Invalid argument; it is possible that . is not in AFS.
[kim@angel /]$ echo $?
[kim@angel /]$
