About supported Lotus Domino database configurations

You can back up the following types of Lotus Domino database configurations using the Lotus Domino Agent:

  • Domino Server Databases.

    Domino Server databases can be Logged or Unlogged, with their DAOS states being not-enabled, read-only, or enabled. DAOS cannot be enabled on Domino databases that do not use logging. Domino databases are located in a folder in the Domino data directory, typically Lotus\Domino\Data, but may also be linked to the Domino data directory using Lotus Linked Databases.

    The following types of Lotus Domino databases are supported:

    • Logged Domino Server Databases.

      A logged Domino Server database logs transactions for one or more Lotus databases. If transaction logging is enabled on the server, all database transactions go into a single transaction log.

    • Unlogged Domino Server Databases.

      An unlogged Domino Server database does not have transaction logging enabled, or the transaction logging has been disabled for specific server databases. Unlogged Domino Server databases will be backed up in their entirety when a full, differential, or incremental backup is performed, but the database can only be restored to the point of the latest database backup.

  • Local Databases.

    Lotus databases are considered Local when they cannot be found in the Domino data directory, cannot be shared, and cannot be logged. This type of database requires a backup of the database itself when using any of the Lotus Domino backup methods. The database can be restored only to the point of the latest database backup.
