You should look into utilizing sudo to somewhat mitigate the risks associated with use of root.

    I have tried the sudo method also and the biggest issue is that Linux and Solaris wont talk so this is why I need some sort of MOD or other small server that will listen on a certain port and then run the quota check.
      what do you mean by Solaris and Linux will not talk? Take a look under abigail's post to see what I would do instead of a homebrew service running on the nfs server. pushing the data out to a db from cron opens less of a hole on the nfs server than a homebrew tcp server.
