The results can be any of these:

  • Success - No message is shown
  • [123] inconsistencies found, where [123] is the number of inconsistencies that CheckTool has found.

Note that, in cases where inconsistencies are found, you will see either a yellow warning icon or a red alarm icon.

The yellow icon is just a warning that something not too serious is wrong. The system proposes a solution.

The red icon means that the problem is serious. You must take action, which might include creating a ticket.
