Checking a repository

Rapid Recovery lets you perform a diagnostic check of a DVM or R3 repository volume when errors occur. Core errors could be the result of it being improperly shut down, a hardware failure, or other environmental, lower IP stack factors that can be exposed in Rapid Recovery functionality.

For both repository technology types, the check performs the following tasks:

For only DVM repositories, the check also performs the "Recalculate deduplication cache for repository" task.

Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.

The Repositories page appears.

4.
In the Check Repository dialog box, confirm that you understand that all active tasks associated with this repository will be canceled and that you want to proceed.
5.
Optionally, to track the status of the job, click the Running tasks drop-down menu in the button bar, and then click the Maintaining Repository job.
