Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Set it to create the Lotus Domino transaction log in Lotus Domino 8.5 format.

Beginning with Domino 8.5, the format of transaction logs can be optimized for Domino servers that use a block size different than the default block size of 512 bytes.

The NOTES.INI option Create_R85_Log=1 will create new transaction logs with an updated format, properly aligning blocks for I/O.


Bring down the server. Back up existing transaction logs, then delete them.  Set Create_R85_Log=1 in the server NOTES.INI and restart the Domino server to have new logs created using the updated format.  The new logs will have properly aligned I/O blocks. There is no need to verify the current block size. Domino will use correctly format the log even if the block size is 512.

Default value:
When Create_R85_Log is absent or set to '0', the default behavior is to use the default size of 512 bytes for I/O block alignment.

Create_R85_Log=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.
