Verifying and Fixing a Logical Drive

While maxView Storage Manager verifies and fixes a logical drive, you can't complete any other tasks on the controller. Because the verification can take a long time to complete, you may want to schedule it as a task to be completed overnight or on a weekend.

Note: You can also choose to verify the logical drive without fixing inconsistent or bad data.

To verify and fix a logical drive:

  1. Ensure that no activity is taking place on the controller for the logical drive.
  2. In the Enterprise View, select the logical drive.
  3. On the ribbon, in the Logical Device group, click Verify.

    The Verify Logical Device window opens.
  4. To verify the logical drive without fixing bad data, click Verify (default). To repair inconsistent or bad data during verification, click Verify with fix.

  5. To verify the logical drive now (immediately), click Verify.

    To verify the logical drive later, click Schedule, then set the time and date to perform the verification. You can also set up the verification as a recurring task. (For more information, see Working with Scheduled Tasks.)

    Do not power off the system while the verification is in progress. If you do, the verification will stop.

    When the verification is complete, an event notice is generated in the local system's event log, at which time you can continue working with the controller.
