Environment

Issue





Symptoms
  • Huge SAVLOG.NSF file exist.
  • The LOG.NSF is bigger than normal.
  • LOG.NSF contains, under Miscellaneous Events, numerous errors like:
    "MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss Error inserting Note ID XXXXXX into data note ID table in C:\Lotus\Domino\Data\SAV\savlog.nsf: Unable to extend an ID table – insufficient memory"
  • When trying to open the SAVLOG.nsf it reports that a consistency check is running.



Cause



The error indicates a possible corruption of SAVLOG.nsf. When opening the SAVLOG.nsf a consistency check is started. As a consequence the error appears in the Domino Console and in LOG.NSF under Miscellaneous Events.

Solution



  • In the Domino Console, type
    tell sav quit
  • In Windows Explorer browse to the Domino Data directory where the SAVLOG.NSF is stored.
  • Rename SAVLOG.NSF
  • In the Domino Console, type
    load ntask

A new SAVLOG.NSF will be created from a template.
