Execute local Fixup Compact on Notes Mac Client

 1 Januar 2015 11:49:40
How do you execute a local Fixup or Compact on Mac OS X running an IBM Notes client?

Because there is no ncompact or nfixup executable on Apple Mac OS X, you will have to do it a bit different.

I do not use it often, but I always have to search for it...

- Open a Terminal Window

- Switch to the Notes App Directory:

  cd /Applications/IBM\

Set the environment variable DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH:    

  export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="/Applications/IBM"

- Switch to the Support subfolder:

       cd Support

- Execute NotesFixup or NotesCompact:


(with out options you will do a compact for all databases in your Lotus Notes Data directory
/Users/YourUsername/Library/Application Support/Lotus Notes Data/ )

   ./NotesCompact mail/your-replica.nsf -c

(or with options for a special database)
