Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Set it to create the Lotus Domino transaction log in (Lotus) Domino 9 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_R9_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_R9_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_R9_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_R9_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.
