Log.nsf back up

Is there a way of automatically archiving off the log.nsf file? For example, every week creating a copy of the log database so that the we don't have to increase the time limit of the log, we can simply open up the appropriate archived nsf if necessary?

Never heard of... Some agent can do that for you easily, if need be, but you already knew that probably.

Sjef,
Don't u think there is a 3rd party software to do this?

Somewhere I saw to manage log files.. cannot recollect.

Hi Madhees,

By any chance, are you that 3rd party?? ;)

You're probably right, I must confess I never needed it and I never even bothered to look for it, since the necessary ingredients are already present in Notes.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Set the Archiving settings (database properties / archive settings) (in R6, at least - but I think this is possible in R5 too), and run compact -A every day (using a program document)

That will create an archive, and archive the documents according to the parameters you set.

cheers,

Tom

Now why didn't I think of that? Must have gotten square eyes so so...

Ah, I remember. Try to do this, you'll see that you need more access. There's no administrator mentioned in the ACL of the log.nsf database, so you can't get to the Archiving settings. Maybe you can circumvent it by some signed agent or so, or using a local client on the server. Very hard with a Linux system...

Well Sjef, that's true on a standard R5 system (although I also always add myself/administrators group to the acl there), but on R6, you normally have the LocalDomainAdmins group in the ACL by default (if you choose that option during install, which I recommend).  And in R6, you have the Full Access Adminstrator too .

cheers,

Tom

Thanks for the suggestions, I was looking for a solution that would archive off the log file into seperate files by date, which doesn't appear to be possible through the facilities offered in Administrator... If the solution is to create a scheduled agent to do this, does anyone have a sample script I can look at?
