Subject: ODS 48 or ODS 51?
Feedback Type: Question
Product Area: Domino Server
Technical Area: Administration
Platform: Windows 2003 server
Release: 8.5
Reproducible: Always

We follow the instructions from the Help quoted at the end of this note. However, after the compact the ODS in the database was 48 and not 51.

Any ideas?


IBM® Lotus® Domino® supports file format, on-disk structure (ODS) 51.
See the Release Notes for version-specific information.
Upgrading from an earlier level of ODS to the current level
To upgrade from an earlier ODS to a current-level ODS format database in Domino, set the following file parameter in the NOTES.INI file on the Domino server or the IBM® Lotus® Notes® client:
When you set the NOTES.INI parameter for ODS, new databases are created using the current level. Use copy-style compacting to upgrade existing ODS databases to the current level of ODS. Use this command to run copy-style compacting:
compact -c <database name>
