[edit] Storage Service packages tab

Fixity report SS.png

Two columns are added to the Storage Service packages tab:

  • Fixity Date, showing the date and time that the fixity check was run
  • Fixity Result, showing the outcome (Succeeded or Failed) with links to tool output in cases of failures or errors (successful fixity scan reports are empty)

[edit] Fixity Results: Failed

Failures should be reported as such if they are actual fixity failures, or if there were errors in the tool.

In the case of a fixity failure the report should have the following:

  • Date/time that fixity was run
  • AIP UUID
  • Which files (names, UUIDs) failed fixity check

In the case of an error the report should have the following:

  • Date/time that fixity was run
  • AIP UUID
  • Nature of the error- for example:

"data/objects/no_such_file exists in manifest but not found on filesystem"
