Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Enabled / Disabled ODS 48 (in Version 8.5)


A new On Disk Structure (ODS) is available with Domino 8.5. This is an update from ODS48 to ODS51. First of all, upgrading applications (formerly called databases) to ODS51 is completely optional and requires the addition of a notes.ini setting on the server (or client).

You must add the parameter Create_R85_Databases=1 to the notes.ini file to enable ODS 51 (Version 8.5) as the default, Create_R85_Databases=0 disabled ODS 51.

This setting affects only NSFs; it has no effect on DB2-enabled Notes databases. Pre-Domino 8 servers ignore this setting, so it is safe to set this parameter even in a mixed version environment.

Default value:

Create_R85_Databases=0 / 1


UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
