14.0 Repairing the Pair, Policy, and Schedule Databases

Novell Dynamic File Services (DynamicFS) requires that the pair, policy, and schedule databases be valid in order for the Service to run. The Repair feature helps ensure that valid copies of the database files are always available to the Service. It runs automatically each time the Service starts. In addition, it takes daily snapshots of the pair, policy, and schedule databases. If a database becomes corrupted, DynamicFS rolls the database back to its last known-to-be-valid snapshot.

The Repair tool allows you to manually check the validity of the databases, create snapshots, and restore snapshots. You can access the Repair tool from the Service Controller menu when the Service is not running.
