Correct use of DBCC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,
    When I do take a VSS-aware (Volume Shadow copy Service) snapshot of a volume which contains only a database do I need to run DBCC(Databse consistency Checker) to check its consistency or being VSS aware it is consistent?
    Thanks
    Akshay.

  • The VSS writer is the component that guarantees that we have a consistent data set to backup. This is typically provided as part of your application software, like SQL Server or Exchange Server. A VSS writer for the basic file system is included with Windows Server. Third-party VSS writers are included with many applications for Windows Server that need to guarantee data consistency at the time of a backup, like Oracle.
