Restrictions on dbcc checkstorage for Shared-Disk Clusters

Restrictions for using dbcc checkstorage on shared-disk clusters.

  • You cannot include instance-only named caches with dbcc checkstorage. dbcc checkstorage issues this error message if you do so:
    The cache %1! cannot be used because it is an instance only cache
  • To run dbcc checkstorage against a local temporary database, you must run the command from the same instance that owns the local temporary database.

  • For performance reasons, dbcc checkstorage in the Cluster Edition may not query the latest version of a page in the cluster. This may cause the Cluster Edition to report more soft faults than other versions.

    For well-partitioned applications where a single instance updates a database, dbcc checkstorage behaves as earlier non-Cluster Edition SAP ASE versions.
