Verify operations in EVSVR

The EVSVR Verify operations let you check the consistency of the information in your vault store partitions, vault store databases, fingerprint databases, and Directory database.

A Verify operation has multiple Option settings from which you can select. The setting determines what data EVSVR verifies.

Table: Option settings for Verify operations lists the available Option settings.

Table: Option settings for Verify operations

Option setting

Action

ArchiveObjects

Verifies that the vault store database records and fingerprint database records point to savesets and SIS parts in a partition:

  • Verifies that each saveset record points to a valid saveset.

  • Verifies that each SIS part record points to a valid SIS part.

You must select the required level of verification for this option.

See Verification levels for an EVSVR ArchiveObjects Verify operation

Archives

Performs an ArchivesDirectory Verify operation, followed by an ArchivesVaultStore Verify operation.

ArchivesDirectory

Verifies that the vault store database records have corresponding records in the Directory database:

  • Verifies that each ArchivePoint record in the vault store database has a corresponding Archive record in the Directory database.

  • Verifies that each Vault record in the vault store database has a corresponding ArchiveFolder record in the Directory database.

ArchivesVaultStore

Verifies that the Directory database records have corresponding records in the vault store databases:

  • Verifies that each Archive record in the Directory database has a corresponding ArchivePoint record in the vault store database.

  • Verifies that each ArchiveFolder record in the Directory database has a corresponding Vault record in the vault store database.

Complete

Performs a DatabaseLinkages Verify operation, followed by an ArchiveObjects Verify operation.

EVSVR performs the ArchiveObjects Verify operation at the most detailed level (SavesetValid).

DatabaseLinkages

Verifies the linkages between the vault store databases and fingerprint databases:

  • Verifies that for each archived item record in a vault store database, a SIS part record exists in the fingerprint database. You can select by archive and date range.

  • Verifies that the reference count for each SIS part record in the fingerprint database matches the total number of references in the vault store databases. You can select by date range but not by archive.

  • For each collection record, verifies that the number of referenced files in a CAB file or savesets in a clip matches the combined total of the following:

    • The number of savesets in the collection as recorded in the vault store database.

    • The number of SIS parts in the collection as recorded in the fingerprint database.

    You can select by date range but not by archive.

  • Reports on the number of unreferenced, unshared, and shared SIS parts.

DatabaseReferences

Verifies that the savesets and SIS parts in a partition are referenced by database records:

  • Verifies that each saveset that is located in a partition is pointed to by a saveset record in a vault store database.

    If the saveset is collected, also verifies that the collection record is complete.

  • Verifies that each SIS part that is located in a partition is pointed to by a fingerprint database record.

    If the SIS part is collected, also verifies that the collection record is complete.

Note the following:

  • This operation is not supported on CIFS and NTFS partitions if you have enabled both the collection process and migration to secondary storage using a migrator other than Enterprise Vault migrator. This is because non-Enterprise Vault migrators do not provide a way to scan the migrated data.

  • If you want to perform this operation on an EMC Centera partition, you must ensure that the Query capability is enabled for the Centera profile with which you connect to the Centera. If the Query capability is disabled, use the Centera CLI or Centera Viewer to run the Show Profile command. This command lists the current capabilities of the Centera profile, which you can then enable or disable by running the Update Profile command.

  • In rare cases, this operation may report the wrong results when items are archived to more than one Centera partition in the same vault store.

DetectCABCollectionIdMismatch

Verifies that the vault store databases contain CAB file collection records whose collection identities match the file names of the associated CAB files. For example, this operation verifies that, when a collection record has a collection identity of 1234, the name of the associated CAB file is Collection1234.cab.

If you find any instances of mismatches between the collection identities and the CAB file names for certain partitions in a vault store database, run the DatabaseReferences Repair operation for those partitions.

See Repair operations in EVSVR

UndatedCollections

Determines the number of collection records in the vault store databases that do not have specified creation dates. In Enterprise Vault 8.0 and later, all new collection records automatically have a specified creation date. However, this is not the case for collection records that an earlier version of Enterprise Vault has created. When the creation date is missing from any collection record, the DatabaseLinkages Verify operation ignores any date range that you specify and processes all of these collection records.

To assign a creation date to any collection record that does not have one, run the UndatedCollections Repair operation.
