Operation type

Description

Report

This operation provides a count or listing of the following:

  • The items in vault store partitions.

  • The records in vault store databases and fingerprint databases.

  • Certain records in the Enterprise Vault Directory database.

For example, a report operation can provide the following:

  • A count of all the files in the site's vault stores that were archived within the last two days.

  • The details of each saveset record in a vault store database.

  • The archive and archive folder information in the Directory database.

Verify

This operation does one or more of the following:

  • Verifies the vault store database and fingerprint database records against the vault store objects that they reference.

  • Verifies that vault store objects have valid records in the vault store databases and fingerprint databases.

  • Verifies the vault store database records against the equivalent fingerprint database records.

  • Verifies the vault store database records against the equivalent Directory database records.

  • Determines the number of collection records in the vault store databases that do not have creation dates.

Repair

This operation does one or more of the following:

  • Uses the vault store objects to repair the records within the vault store databases and between the vault store databases and fingerprint databases.

  • Blacklists any SIS parts that do not verify correctly. After you blacklist a SIS part, archiving a new item with the same SIS part causes Enterprise Vault to create a new SIS part file on disk.

  • Deletes the vault store and fingerprint database records that are associated with missing items.

  • Recreates any missing saveset and SIS part records in the vault store and fingerprint databases.

  • Sets a creation date for any collection record in a vault store database that does not have one.

  • Recreates any missing archive and archive folder information in the vault store databases when the corresponding information exists in the Directory database.

  • For Exchange Mailbox and File System archives, recreates any missing archive and archive folder information in the Directory database when the corresponding information exists in the vault store databases.

  • For Exchange Mailbox and File System archives, recreates any missing archive and archive folder information in the Directory database and vault store databases when the information is missing from them both, and EVSVR can obtain the required information from the target Exchange system or file system volume.

EVSVR can perform operations on CIFS, NTFS, and Centera partitions, partitions on streamer storage devices, and on both collected and uncollected items. Before you can perform an EVSVR operation, you must define it in an operation file.
