You configure a Lotus Domino® database to use LZ1 compression and want to convert existing attachments to this algorithm to take advantage of its superior compression ratio. How can you upgrade the compression algorithm for existing attachments?
To convert existing attachments from Huffman to LZ1 compression, perform the following steps:
1. Enable the database property, "Use LZ1 compression for attachments", found in Database Properties --> Advanced (beanie) panel.
2. From the server console, run the following command (without quotes): "load compact -ZU"
