DAOS issue, databases marked but not processing

I ran into an issue with a DAOS server where many databases are marked for DAOS ( admin client > Files > select databases > advanced properties > enable DAOS ). The problem is that some databases had attachments removed and stored in DAOS and other databases didn't. Doing a

tell daosmgr dbsummary

Displayed all the selected databases are 'Synchronized' with 0. Doing a

After some googling I finally found my answer in the following link:

I ended up doing a
load compact -c xxxxx.nsf

and that forced the attachments to be removed and stored in DAOS. Also don't forget to apply Fix Pack 3 to all DAOS servers if you are running 8.5.1!

False "This database is not registered with DAOS" error

While trying to do a status command on a DAOS enabled database I received a weird error. The error stated "This database is not registered with DAOS". The enhancement request states that inputting a forward slash like so:

tell daosmgr status mail/xxxxx.nsf

with the database name and path will display the error:

DAOS database status:
This database is not registered with DAOS.
DAOSMGR: Status mail/xxxxxx.nsf completed

So use a backslash :)

Evo 4G

Picked up my EVO 4G phone recently and I have to say I love this phone! This phone is a big improvement from my G1. 4G coverage is pretty good in St. Louis. The battery life is an issue but I plug the phone in at work.

I really like the facebook integration and 7 home screens. Citrix app is very cool, I wish it supported multi touch.

Lotus Connections 2.5 - no 64bit support - tivoli

While loading Lotus Connections 2.5 on Windows Server 2008 64bit I ran across an issue with installing Tivoli Directory Integrator ( TDI ). I would get to the install splash screen:

"I would try and click on the IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator 6.1.1 Installer" link and nothing would happen. I would check the task manager and I would see a process running ( I can't remember the name of the process, it could have been either msiexec or java ) but nothing would happen.

I was able to install db2 and webshpere without issues but once I tried to install TDI it would not work. After some searching around for Lotus Connections 2.5 requirements, I found that neither 64bit Windows OS or Windows Server 2008 is supported. Bummer, I guess I should have looked at this first right?  :)

I wonder if Lotus Connections 2.5 would load on a 64 bit Window OS if TDI wasn't installed...

Here is the link to the Lotus Connections 2.5 system requirements:

Instant Messaging Sametime error

Had this error while trying to send an image over Lotus Sametime chat. I found out that the integrated instant messaging ("Sametime") for Lotus Notes 8.x basic and all versions below cannot receive rich text or images. On the full Lotus Sametime client or Lotus Notes Standard ( eclipse ) integrated client will send and receive images and rich text. Below is the error message
