Configuration document validation

Use these fields to specify the level of validation to perform on configuration documents.

Maximum

Select Maximum: Validate all documents turns on validation for all documents, regardless of whether or not they are extracted, and regardless of the relationships between the documents.

High

Select High: Validate extracted, parent, and local sibling documents turns on validation for extracted documents and their parent documents, and turns on validation for the sibling documents of the documents which have been extracted. For example, if High validation is selected, and if the server.xml document is extracted, when performing validation, validation is performed on the three documents: server.xml, node.xml, and cell.xml. and on the two sibling documents variables.xml and resources.xml within the server1 directory.

Medium

Select Medium: Validate extracted and parent documents turns on validation for the documents which have been extracted by the user interface, and also turns on validation of the parent documents of the documents which have been extracted. For example, using the previous partial directory structure, if Medium validation is selected, and if the server.xml document is extracted, when performing validation, validation is performed on all three of the documents server.xml, node.xml, and cell.xml.

Low

Select Low: Validate extracted documents turns on validation for just those documents which have been extracted by the user interface.

None

Select None: Do not validate documents disables validation. No configuration documents are validated.


Enable Cross Validation

Enables cross validation of configuration documents. Enabling cross validation enables comparison of configuration documents for conflicting settings.

Warning
