The DEBUG_OUTFILE setting is an obsolete parameter and has been replaced
by CONSOLE_LOG_ENABLED. Starting with Domino 6.0, the Domino server creates
a CONSOLE.LOG file by default in the IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT folder, which
is located in the server's Data directory. CONSOLE.LOG is superior to the
use of DEBUG_OUTFILE because it can be dynamically enabled and disabled
at the server console, thus eliminating delays capturing crucial data.
Server reboots are no longer required to begin capturing basic console
logging, which is not the case when using the parameter DEBUG_OUTFILE.
For backwards compatibility, when debug_outfile is present in the NOTES.INI
it takes precedence. However, using the debug_outfile parameter
is no longer the preferred method for capturing console output.
When absent, console logging is controlled by the NOTES.INI parameter Console_Log_Enabled.
Completely remove all references to DEBUG_OUTFILE. Use CONSOLE_LOG_ENABLED
A server restart is required.
