Internal Databank Check
In addition to the DBC program there is an internal databank check feature within the database server. When the database server is started, if it is noticed that the system was closed in a non-proper way, this verification will be triggered. The default check includes page consistency and checksum validation. If an error is found, the broken databank file will not be opened and the database will not be fully functional. In a situation like this a backup, or corresponding, must be used to get the system operational.
On VMS and Linux the internal databank check feature is controlled using the database server configuration parameter
DBCheck, see MULTIDEFS Parameters.
On Windows the Mimer Administrator is used to control the internal databank check feature.
