Rescanning the GUI database


Rescanning the GUI database

In certain situations you may need to rescan (rather than refresh) the GUI database. The rescan feature generates a fresh database and updates all the changes in the cluster.


There is a corresponding Support> gui db rescan command that can be executed from the FileStore CLI. See the Symantec FileStore Command-Line Administrator’s Guide for more information about using the CLI.

To rescan the GUI database

  1. A warning message automatically displays in the GUI when the database needs to be rescanned. When the message displays, click OK.

  2. Another message appears to inform you that the Web service will be terminated. Click OK.

  3. When the Web service returns, re-login to the GUI.
