Update the On-disk structure (ODS):

Attachment consolidation works for all databases that are on-disk structure ODS 50 and later. Databases with an earlier ODS do not include the DAOS setting in their advanced properties. To create all newly created databases with ODS 50, enter the following setting in your NOTES.INI file:


After that you you could change the ODS from every database / application to ODS 50 with the compact task:

load compact -c mail\bwieczor.nsf

That will run a compact style task on the users mail file and will change the ODS from a earlier version to the ODS 50.


Attachment consolidation is not limited to mail; it occurs as soon as an attachment is saved in any document of any database on the server where the feature is enabled.
