Volume Consistency Checker for over 1000 volumes

asked on January 27, 2017

I've read through the other posts about the VCC and they're pretty old. We're trying to use it against our 10.1 repository and validate that when we moved our volumes from multiple servers into a single location that we got all of the files we need.

I'm trying to use the VCC and I've come across a couple questions:

1. Is there a way to run the volume consistency checker against our entire repository of 60 volumes and 1250+ physical volumes? I realize this would take a while but if I could at least pick a virtual volume and have it run for all of the associated physical that would be helpful. Having to select each volume one by one and wait for it to complete is going to take us months just to check each volume.

2. The window where you can pick the volumes from the repository is too narrow for our volume names. We can't see the actual physical volume without selecting each one. They're sorted by ID but it would be more helpful to sort by volume name since that is what is displayed.

3. Is there any plan to integrate this type of functionality within the Admin console in the future?


We've used the utility when we were first starting out but now that our repository has grown it does not seem to be as practical as it used to be.

Hi All,


I'm also feeling this pain, is there a command line arguement or something that will let me check all the volumes at once? I understand this may take some time, but it's going to be quicker that trying to check each volume individually! (especially when there are 1000's of volumes!)


Any ideas welcome! Cheers!

We also have 250+ volumes and would like to be able to run a check on them all after our disaster recovery simulations to ensure that out SQL and Volume backups are in sync.  This will be especially critical in the case of an actual disaster recovery scenario to make sure we are not missing data.
