Is there a way to select "DAOS" when running compact from the Domino Administrator client?

Technote (FAQ)


From the "Files" tab in the Domino Administrator you have chosen to compact a database. You would like to enable DAOS at this time. Is there an option to do this?


There is no option from the "Compact Database" dialog (see figure below) to enable or disable DAOS.


To enable or disable DAOS, manually enter the compact command at the server console.

    load compact -c -daos < on/off > < File_path/File_Name>

For example:
    load compact -c -daos -on mail/myfile.nsf

The ability to select DAOS from this dialog has been reported to IBM Lotus Quality Engineering as an enhancement request, SPR AHOE7YBQXY, for a future release.
