Checking the Integrity of a Volume
If SAN users have trouble accessing files, use the
command to check the
integrity of a volume, its metadata, and its files.
To check a volume:
Open Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities/).
If you aren’t working at the SAN controller computer, use SSH to log in to the controller
$ ssh user@computer
with the name of an administrator user on the controller computer and
with the controller’s name or IP address.
command-line utility (in /Library/Filesystems/Xsan/bin/) to check the
volume without making repairs:
$ sudo cvfsck -vn volume
You’ll see a warning that the journal is active; this is normal.
