Been playing myth.find_orphans.pl, it seems to me that I get a number of
false positives for "unknown files" due to having overlapping storage groups
on multiple backends. The reason is because it's pulling the list of known
files for a single backend, so files attributed to another backend in the
same storagegroup are seen as unknown files.
What I'm debating is whether it's "better" behavior to simply disable the
hostname check and check for all files or to check unknown files against
Anyone have a strong opinion?
