Veritas Enterprise Vault (tm) 6.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2): Updates to DVSChecker
versions of DVSChecker were unable to check for items that had been
expired on the day it was run. This would mean that if you expire a sharer and
then run DVSChecker, the expired items were incorrectly reported as
missing dvs. If DVSChecker is run a day later missing dvs
files aren't reported. This is because DVSChecker checks for expired
items per day and not per hour/min.
A change has gone in to improve how DVSChecker
reports expired items when an item has sharers. There is now a "Report
Expired Items" check box, which will include expired items in the report. If
this check box is cleared, Expired items will NOT be reported.
To run the
verifies that all the .DVS files in the storage area are also in the storage
database. If a .DVS file is missing, the utility lets you repair the database.
DVSChecker restores saveset, vault, and ArchivePoint records for normally
archived items. However, the utility does not restore WatchFile and
DVSChecker does not work if items have been stored on an EMC Centera
device or collected into .cab files. You must return all pending items to the
Normal Email state and re-archive them.
Before you run
DVSChecker, run DVSChecker.sql to install the stored procedures.
