Fixed In Version: 389-ds-base-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: A command line utility verify-db.pl takes "-a Database Directory" to specify the path to the database. But even if it is given, the option was ignored and the path defined in the configuration was used. Fix: Now the bug was fixed and the given path to the database is used by verify-db.pl.

Description Noriko Hosoi 2015-07-23 15:07:16 UTC
Description of problem:

verify-db.pl has option '-a 'which can specify path to DB.


But if verify-db.pl run with -a option, it does not verify DB files under DB directory which is specified by option '-a',  but it alreays verify instance DB instead.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. take backup by db2bak
2. run DB verify against backup DB with -a option

./verify-db.pl -a /var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-test/bak/test-2015_07_06_16_32_07

Actual results:

DB files unser instance's DB directory always get verified. 

Expected results:

DB files under DB directory specified -a option is verified.

Additional info:

Easy workaround:

verify-db: This tool should only be run if recovery start fails
and the server is down.  If you run this tool while the server is
running, you may get false reports of corrupted files or other
false errors.

Marking as VERIFIED.
