OK, I am putting in an honest effort here – I really want to do this Australia LUG thing. Fosters, Rugby and dancing Koalas – along with me babling about something vaguely technology related. How can that be wrong? Somebody throw me a bone, I really am ready for this.
You can tell from my posts today that I have been investigating DAOS a bit to get some more under-the-hood info that I might be need. I came across this technote here that specifies how to turn on DAOS on newly created archives when server based archiving is utilized.
The kicker of this is that the new 8.5.2 admin client only is delivered with the 8.5.1 help file (what’s up with that???) and this information is not included in that help file:
Server Based Archiving:
Is run via the compact command using one of the switches [-a/-A/-j] when the option Domino server based archiving is enabled in mail files (best via policies, lets not get into that right now).
Since release 8.5 you could use the following command to enable the newly created archive to be DAOS enabled
load compact -A DAOS on mail\xxxx.nsf
In-place compaction switch [-a] would not work though, only the archiving function as is.
New in 8.5.2 –
In release 8.5.2, you can now use the [-a] switch ion combination with the [-DAOS on] switch to archive, compact the mail file in place and DAOS enable the archive at the same time as follows:
load compact -a -DAOS on mail\xxxx.nsf
*** SUBTLE HINT TO IBM ***
… I hope that IBM will create a new 8.5.1 admin helpfile soon for download. I for myself use that as the first line of investigation whenever looking into some functionality and do nto necessarily always go out onto the Internet for more information. If it ain’t in there I might assume it does not exist . . . . . . the InfoCenter does not appear to be updated either …
How DAOS functions with mail quotas
I found this one in the Domino support feed this morning and it is rather informative. I read all new and updated technotes every day (or at least glance over them) and as DAOS is getting more and more of an implementation base I thought I would bring this one to everybody’s attention.
It deals with how DAOS impacts mail quota behavior when adding a document or extending the file size. Rather interesting. It also has a link to another technote for 8.5 (no “x”) regarding a bug that displays the actual files size incorrectly in iNotes when DAOS is enabled.
