DAOS enhancement for archive databases

Technote (troubleshooting)


The 8.5.1 Administrator Help database that will be included with release 8.5.2 does not include this information. This technote is the repository for this information until a future release when the documentation content will again be updated.

Resolving the problem

In this release, you can use a combination of compact options to DAOS-enable a newly created archive database.

Background information on compact options

Normally, when you archive documents in a database, you can use the command-line compact option -a to archive documents if the database is located on a server and you've chosen the basic archiving option "Domino server based."

Since release 8.5, you can also use the -daos on compact option to move attachments in existing documents into the DAOS repository while performing a copy-style compact. This option is not available for in-place compaction.

New behavior in this release

When the -daos on and -a options are used together, for example:

load compact -a -DAOS on mail\smith.nsf

and when an archive database is newly created during the archive, the new archive database will be DAOS-enabled.

Note: The combination of compact options will not affect the mail\smith.nsf database itself, or any existing archive databases. Also, the behavior of compact does not change when the otions -a and -DAOS off are used together.
