EVSVR is a Windows command-line utility for Enterprise Vault storage reporting and verification.
I have been now using EVSVR for over 5 months, it is a great tool and would recommend every one to use it. I run it daily, and report on the past 7 days.
This helps me for two reasons:
■ I will find out straight away should i have any issues
■ If I am required to ever run Verification on a certain Data set It wont take me months to run as its already been verified.
One problem I have found with running this daily is the amount of manual work involved. I have therefore created a script which you can simply set up as a scheduled task.
The script does the following:
■ Runs EVSVR
■ cleans the reports up (removes the messy time stamps ect)
■ zips all the output files up
■ Emails the relevant admins with the reports (The body contains the results if any have faild - no need to trawl the logs)
■ Writes an entry into the EventLog so you know its been successful (I am working on adding stats - savesets verified, failed, ect,ect)
EVSVR can perform the following types of operation:
■ Report operation. This type of operation provides a count or a listing of the items in vault store partitions, or the records in vault store or fingerprint databases. For example, a report operation may provide:
■ Acount of all of 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.
■ Verify operation. This type of operation does one or more of the following:
■ Verifies 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 the fingerprint databases.
■ Verifies vault store database records against the equivalent fingerprint database records.
For example a verify operation can verify that all of the records in the vault store and fingerprint databases point to valid items in a partition.
In future releases EVSVR will be enhanced to include repair operations.
The EVSVR utility can perform operations on both CIFS (NTFS) and Centera partitions, and on both collected and uncollected items.
Please note this is still work in progress, should anyone have any updates on this please let me know so I can incorporate them into the script.
