VERIFY-DB.PL(8) System Manager's Manual VERIFY-DB.PL(8)

NAME - Directory Server perl script for verifying the database.

SYNOPSIS [-Z serverID] [ -a path ] [-h]


Verifies the backend database files. If the server crashes because of a corrupted database, this script can be used to verify the integrity of the different database files to help isolate any problems.


A summary of options is included below:

The server ID of the Directory Server instance. If there is only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped.
Gives the path to the database directory. If this option is not passed with the command, then it uses the default database directory, /var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-instance_name/db.
