Short Description: Forced upgrading multiple local databases to a new ODS


Upgrading multiple local databases to a new ODS

In this release, using either the Notes Client, Domino Administrator Client, or Domino Designer Client, you can force the client to perform ODS upgrades of all local databases.

For most non-essential databases, the ODS upgrade will take place in a background process and while a database is upgraded, the end user will not be able to use the database.

For essential databases that are in use at the point that an upgrade is attempted, the ODS upgrade will be done at the next first time open which will typically occur at client restart.

Configuration Options - Required

The following new NOTES.INI setting performs the upgrade: NSF_UpdateODS=1.

With this setting, the client will do a one time pass to upgrade local databases using the compact task.

Configuration Options - Optional

In addition, the specific ODS level that is desired should be set (if none set, ODS51 will be forced). For example, to create ODS 51 databases use the Create_R85_Databases=1 setting. To create ODS 48 databases use the Create_R8_Databases=1 setting.

Default value:

NSF_UpdateODS=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.
