FSAFixOfflineFile.exe to remove offline attribute

Created: 09 Jul 2010 | 3 comments

I have used the FSAFixOfflineFile.exe on several of my servers to remove the offline attribute from files that are not placeholder. The tool works pretty well but says it is for NTFS placeholders only. Does anyone know if there is a version that will work for placeholders that are on a Netapp filer?

I could be wrong, but is this not a tool that does not ship with the product but rather was developed to fix specific customer issues via Symantec Engineering? Where did you get this tool from? It could be that it was not developeed to run against a NetApp. I think there are also third party tools that will remove offline attributes.  Fileboss is one that springs to mind.  May be this will work against a Netapp???

Hey Guys,
I got the tool from Symantec support, and was not sure if there was also a version that can be used for Netapp or other third party options such as was mentioned by The Don. I will contact support to see if they have a newer version that supports filers.
