|What steps are necessary to place a Lotus Notes® database on a CD, DVD, or any read-only media?|
| 1. Open the database and press CTRL+SHIFT+F9. This key combination will refresh all views in the database including open views, hidden views, and private views. It is important to build the view indexes before copying the database to read-only media because if they are not created and stored in the .nsf file prior to transfer, Notes will attempt to create the indexes but won't be able to because it cannot write to the media.
2. Create the full-text index for the database if you intend to queue the database using Notes full-text indexing capabilities. You can do this using the File > Full Text Search > Create Index command. This index must be created prior to placing the database on read-only media for the same reason described for view indexes in the step above.
3. Do an operating system level copy (use a DOS or OS/2 copy command) of the .nsf file (and the .ft if you created a full text index) from the writeable media to the read-only media to be used. Be sure that this is an operating system level copy, not a File > Database > Copy from within Notes, since using Notes to copy the database will remove the view indexes.
To remove the read-only setting, right-click the database icon, remove the read-only checkmark, and be sure to click Apply. If you receive a warning message, click Ignore All. This allows you to read the database without receiving any error message when opening, as long as you did a CTRL+SHIFT+F9 before copying the database.

If you find that an ODS of 48 was used to copy a database to a CD or DVD, Product Development advises that you reverse the ODS to 43 using the "-r" switch, for example, Compact -r acme.nsf
