Defrag &Scan Disk

Does anyone see any issues with running a Defrag or scan disk on a CM server?

We are in the process of cloning our CM servers with Norton Ghost 12.0 and we are receiving "bad sector" errors. Norton suggested running a scan disk and defrag on the machine in question. Thoughts?

Re: Defrag &Scan Disk

doing a defrag and scandisk should not cause any issue, but to be safe, it should be done during non production hours. Defrag with Windows 2000 sometimes can cause high CPU utilization as well.

Though, installing and running Norton Ghost is not supported nor recommended with CallManager. If you are trying to build a Lab server identical to your Production system, you should install a fresh version of CM and restore data using BARS. For information about how to use BARS you can refer:

Hope this helps
