How To: Compact Only Your Databases That Are Behind the Server ODS Level

Useful tip on how to compact only the databases on your server that aren't up to the ODS level set on the server.
In the compact task there is an option that allows you to run an undocumented ODS-run copy-style compaction only to databases that have a version ods less than that specified in the notes.ini of the server (eg Create_R85_Databases = 1) .
load compact-ODS

Very useful to avoid time-consuming copy-style on everything or having to specify each database.

  1. Yeah, great new options in 8.5.1+ with compact. Also, my colleague David Brown posted about this new ODS option 2 months ago here.

Error 217 - Error creating product object on Domino 64 bit

I'd like to share something with you.   An error that you'll get if you are trying to use ODBC with Domino 8.5.1 64bit. It starts out with an agent error of Error 217.  The text of the error is "Error creating product object" You can read about it here on the Notes/Domino forum . You can find the solution here as well . I guess I'm now waiting for Domino 8.5.2 for a solution for this.   It would have been nice to have had this in the release notes.  It would have help me greatly.

Fun Little Earthquake

It's 1:45pm EST in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We just had an earthquake.  Not strong enough to damage anything, but enough that I watched people run out of buildings. What a fun Wednesday.

Reminder: Increase the maximum available memory on your Lotus Notes client JVM today!

Yup, that's right.  Public Service Announcement time. If you haven't increased the maximum memory available to your Lotus Notes JVM yet, what are you waiting for? By default, the Notes JVM only has 256mb of memory available to it.  On a system with 4GB+ of memory, you should be easily able to increase it to 1/4 to 1/3 of the system memory and improve the end user performance. Here's how: Shut down Lotus Notes. In order to make sure that all processes are stopped, run this command:  Start -> Run Type: C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\nsd.exe -kill Open: C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\deploy\ Open the "jvm.properties" file in a text editor like notepad.  You will possibly require Administrator permissions. At the beginning of the file, you will see text surrounded by a lot of pound signs ####. The first ‘property’ after the last # sign is: vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx256m Change 256m to 1024m so that the line reads: vmarg.X
