Data Integrity Check

Integrity Check Management

This feature verifies the health status of backup data periodically, ensuring the data is restore-ready for each backup job. This is achieved by running integrity check for the last successful incremental for any specified backup job during which the backup data is mount checked, boot checked and its heartbeat check is verified as well. This verification is carried out for every N minutes(Where N is 1200 by default which can be modified by the user).

Information Note:

  • Integrity Check is performed only for image-based backup jobs
  • Boot check requires Hyper-V role to be enabled in Windows Servers and KVM installed in Linux Servers running BDR Backup Server
  • Refer this KB-115079 for detailed requirements to perform Integrity Check
  • Click Management Tab and Select Integrity Check option.
  • The option is enabled, by default.
