Problem
When you create a new application in a Lotus Notes® 8 client or on a Lotus® Domino® 8 server, you find the on-disk structure (ODS) remains at 43, the ODS version introduced in Notes/Domino 6. Running Compact or Compact -c against the application does not upgrade the ODS as that command did in previous releases of the Notes client and Domino server.
 
Cause
The default behavior for the on-disk structure has been changed in Notes/Domino 8. The new ODS version for Notes/Domino 8 is 48, but that ODS version is not enabled by default for new or upgraded applications.
 
Solution
You must add the parameter CREATE_R8_DATABASES=1 to the notes.ini file to enable ODS 48 (Version 8) as the default. Detailed steps and information are below. For more information, refer to the topic "Domino's On-Disk Structure" in the Domino Administrator documentation.

For the Domino 8 server, upgrade applications residing on the server as follows:

  • Add the following notes.ini parameter to the notes.ini file on the Domino server: CREATE_R8_DATABASES=1
      • The parameter is dynamic and can be enabled with 1 or disabled with 0 using "set config"
      • The parameter is not case sensitive.
  • Load Compact -c against the applications you wish to upgrade.
      • If an application is updated in error, you can revert the ODS to the previous release with Compact -r.
  • Any new applications created on the Domino server will be created with the version 8 ODS provided that the CREATE_R8_DATABASES parameter is set to 1. If the value is returned to 0 (zero), new applications will be created with the version 6 ODS.

For the Notes 8 client, upgrade applications residing on the client as follows:

  • Add the following notes.ini parameter to the notes.ini on the client: CREATE_R8_DATABASES=1
      • Adding or changing this value in the notes.ini file requires a restart of the Notes client to take effect.
  • Once the notes.ini parameter is in place and the Notes client restarted, any new application created will have an ODS of 48.
  • Run Compact -c against the existing applications you wish to upgrade.
      • Locate the required program for your operating system (for example, ncompact on Windows)
  • If an application is updated in error, you can revert the ODS to the previous release with Compact -r.
