Using IBM Notes support tools on Mac OS X

Following on from my earlier post: -


I decided it was time to do some basic house-keeping on my mail file.

From last time around, I realised that I had to copy two of the required tools to a slightly different directory on my Mac, as follows: -

$ cd /Applications/IBM Notes.app/Contents/MacOS
$ ln -s Support/NotesFixup .
$ ln -s Support/NotesCompact .

Having done this, I validated that the tools were available in the right location: -

$ ls -al Notes*

-rwxrwxr-x  1 root  admin  29168 15 Oct 09:03 Notes
lrwxr-xr-x  1 hayd  admin     20  9 Jan 14:45 NotesCompact -> Support/NotesCompact
lrwxr-xr-x  1 hayd  admin     18  9 Jan 14:45 NotesFixup -> Support/NotesFixup


I then ran the two tools as follows: -

$ cd /Users/hayd/Library/Application Support/IBM Notes Data
$ /Applications/IBM\ Notes.app/Contents/MacOS/NotesFixup GBHX9675.nsf
