This article provides information about the automation of storage consistency checks on PowerEdge RAID Controllers (PERC) using Open Manage Server Administrator (OMSA) Command Line in Microsoft Windows operating systems.
For systems running Windows server 2008(r2) and 2012(r2), along with the Open Manage Server Administrator software, you can use Task Scheduler to automate the process of running consistency checks of PowerEdge RAID Controllers (PERC). It is recommended to run the check at least once a month. Once started the check itself will take approximately 3 to 5 minutes per gigabyte in the virtual disk and by default dedicate around 30% of system resources to the check.
