This article provides information on how to manually synchronize and verify files, the registry, and related tasks. 


All FoE versions


Manually synchronize and verify files and the registry:

  1. When a file or folder has been detected as Out-of-Sync, the folder structure to the left side of the screen changes replacing standard folder icons with red folder icons from the Out-of-Sync file up the tree to the parent drive.  
  2. The Out-of-Sync files can be manually synchronized by clicking the Synchronize button, which rather than re-synchronizing the entire protected file structure, will just resynchronize the files listed in the right pane. Any files may be resynchronized at any time by selecting their entry in the file list and clicking the Synchronize button in the File Hierarchy frame.
  3. The process to verify and synchronize is identical to the synchronize process except that you select the Verify and Synchronize button. Select the Include Subdirectories check box to ensure all underlying files and subfolders are included in the verification and synchronization operation.


When a verification or synchronization operation is underway, the progress bar graphic will display the status.
Each manual or automatically scheduled synchronization and verification request is defined as a task. Other tasks are queued for processing until the current task is completed. Each task is listed in the task list to the right of the current task frame.


Cancel a synchronization or verification task 

Individual tasks can be cancelled if required. However, canceling tasks that have been automatically triggered may lead to the system becoming unchecked and a warning will show.
If the system is unchecked, recover by performing a Full System Check, which is triggered by clicking the Full System Check button. A Full System Check performs the same block level check of all the files, set by the file filters that the initial startup synchronization and verification performs.


Review the status of registry replication

The Registry Synchronization Status pane of the Data: Replication screen in the SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager allows the status of registry replication to be reviewed.
The Full Registry Check button allows all the registry keys matching the built-in registry filters to be re-scanned and synchronized between the servers.
