Run a File System Check Automatically
This feature adds the option to perform an automatic file system check if the FortiGate shuts down ungracefully.
By default, automatic file system check is disabled. When disabled, the next time an administrator logs in after an ungraceful shutdown, a warning message will advise them to manually run a file system check.
WARNING: File System Check Recommended! Unsafe reboot may have caused inconsistency in disk drive. It is strongly recommended that you check file system consistency before proceeding. Please run 'execute disk scan 17' Note: The device will reboot and scan during startup. This may take up to an hour
