DAOS - Get a list of all the nlos that contain the attachments of a single database.

It would be useful to know which NLOs contain the attachments of a single database to be able to see the database as a whole, especially for troubleshooting after a restore.

It should work like the nlo missing command but listing the existing ones.

    the DAOSMgr can list NLOs missing and existing NLO per database.

    If you don't specify the "missing" keyword it will show all NLOs.

    There are debugging options available to see more NLO information.

    The main questions here is -- as Thomas says -- what type of troubleshooting you want to do.

    With Domino 12.0 there is restore integration for Domino backup.

    In Domino 12.0.1 3rd party restore is added to allow to integrate with your exisitng backup solution which is leveraging the Backup C-API and you can use the UI components of the Domino backup&restore to restore databases including an option to integrate NLO restore.

    In addition with 12.0.1 there is a separate NLO restore per database, directory and also the whole server.

    The restore always works in the same way:

    1. Check the number of missing NLOs

    2. Provide the list to the restore application and get them restored

    3. Check again for missing NLOs

    Most of the times this is what an admin might want. But you can also list existing NLOs as explained above.

    And there is also a diagnostic command that dumps a lot of information.

    I don't see any documentation for the command or the notes.ini
    But you find it in a couple of business partner blogs.

    Here are the details how to run it:


    tell daosmgr LISTNLO MAP -V mail/nsh.nsf

    This shows a ton of information.

    Have a look at Ulrich's blog --> https://www.eknori.de/2016-03-08/daos-find-a-note-for-a-missing-nlo-file/

    This should be added to documentation, but the feature is there.

    What kind of troubleshooing are you intending to do here? Listing missing NLO is obvious, but I dont understand why you want to list the NLOs that belong to the NSF
