You can validate the data in the domain and post office databases at any time without interrupting normal GroupWise operation. The frequency can vary depending on the size of your system and the number of changes you make to users, resources, and distribution lists.
Make sure you have full administrative rights to the domain and post office database directories you are validating.
In ConsoleOne®, browse to and select the Domain object or Post Office object where you want to validate the database.
Click Tools > GroupWise Utilities > System Maintenance.
Click Validate Database > Run.
When prompted, make sure the Path to Database is correct. If an incorrect path is displayed, browse to and select the path to the database being validated. Click OK.
You will be notified if there are any physical problems, so you can then recover or rebuild the database.
