Provide a built-in function for DAOS to cooperate with Domino backup / restore function provided from Domino V12

Built-in backup / restore function is provided from Domino V12. But by now, there is still no available built-in solution to care backup / restore for DAOS related files.


Customer wish HCL could provide a built-in solution to care backup / restore for DAOS when using Domino V12 backup / restore function.

    Domino 12.0.0 already has DAOS restore integration for restoring a database.

    Domino 12.0.1 added command line restore integration for single databases, directories and the whole server.

    load restore daos xyz.nsf

    will restore missing DAOS objects, if you provided the right integration script for your backup vendor.

    There are very rare cases when you need a DAOS restore.
    The NLO retention time should be always set higher than the backup retention time. So in theory you should not need NLO restores often.

    It would be only required when restoring very old backups. Which is not what Domino backup is designed for due to the nature of integration options.
    Still it would work if you keep both backups for the same retention time.

    Backup of DAOS isn't something Domino should need to take care of.
    It's a simple incremental forever file backup job, which is independend from a Domino NSF backup. It just should be scheduled in similar inteval.

    Building an integration for backup is not needed from my experience in the field.

    The integration of DAOS in the HCL solution would significantly simplify the backup/restore process and make it more reliable.
