There's no need to schedule downtime for this.
Take advantage of the fact that a scsi disk is accessible from several machines at once (by connecting two host adapters.)
The disk that is "main disk" for one machine is mounted read-only for checking by another machine. The other machine always boot cleanly because
it boots from a unwriteable cdrom. It can tell if something bad happens to files on the "shared" disk.
