Restore of “DAOSified” mail databases

Some weeks ago I had the issue to restore a mail database in a cluster environment for which DAOS was enabled. I took the following steps:

1. Disable replication on the Mail-/Home server of the user

2. Delete the replica on the cluster server

3. Restore the database on the cluster server

4. Enter the following command on the cluster server tell daosmgr listnlo -o missing.txt MISSING mail/databasename.nsf

5. lo updall mail/databasename.nsf -RX

6. Reenable the replication on the Mail-/Home server of the user

 
If the database cannot be opened on the Cluster Server, you can run the following commands:

> lo fixup mail/databasename.nsf -F

> lo updall mail/databasename.nsf -RX
