DAOS Backup and Restore

From the TN 1358548. Before implementing DAOS take care of your backup strategy

In a standard Notes® database (NSF), the attachments are stored inside the NSF file itself, and the database is self-contained. In order to back up a standard Notes database, only the NSF file itself needs to be backed up. After you introduce DAOS, the NSF files that participate in DAOS contain only references to the NLO files where the attachment content is stored. As a result, backing up the NSF alone is no longer enough. The NLO data needs to be backed up as well.
