Verifying w/Fix and Background Consistency Check [MSM]
Verifying and Fixing a Logical Drive
Note: while maxView Storage Manager verifies and fixes a logical drive, you can't complete any other tasks on the controller. Because the verification can take a long time to complete, you may want to schedule it as a task to be completed overnight or on a weekend.
To verify and fix a logical drive:
Enabling/Disabling Background Consistency Check
- In the Enterprise View, select the logical drive.
- On the ribbon, in the Logical Device group, click Verify. The Verify Logical Device window opens.
- To verify the logical drive without fixing bad data, click Verify (default). To repair inconsistent or bad data during verification, click Verify with fix.
- To verify the logical drive now (immediately), click Verify. To verify the logical drive later, click Schedule, then set the time and date to perform the verification. You can also set up the verification as a recurring task. Caution: Do not power off the system while the verification is in progress. If you do, the verification will stop. When the verification is complete, an event notice is generated in the local system's event log, at which time you can continue working with the controller.
If your controller supports background consistency check, maxView Storage Manager continually and automatically checks your logical drives for bad or inconsistent data once they're in use.
To enable or disable background consistency check:
- In the Enterprise View, select a controller.
- On the ribbon, in the Controller group, click Set Properties. The Set Properties window opens.
- Click the Data Protection tab.
- In Consistency Check drop-down list, select Enabled or Disabled.
- Enter the Consistency Check Period period, in days (such as 14).
- Click Apply.
