New DAOSEST posted - issue on i5/OS

Paul Mooney and Andy Pedisich have posted regarding the new DAOS Estimator tool (v1.1). This new version eliminates the MIME to CD conversion that was seen with the old tool and it also adds a save file for installing on System i. We had already called IBM about the install file for System i so I was glad to see they fixed it.

However, I just installed the tool on our System i and ran it against one of our test Domino servers. The Domino server immediately crashes. I tired it multiple times with different files and it crashes every time. This Domino server is running 7.0.3FP1 and i5/OS V5R4M0.

I tried the new version on Windows and Linux Domino servers and they worked fine.

Run the tool on a test i5/OS Domino server first just in case.

Update: As stated in the comments, you need to have Domino 8.x code installed on i5/OS in order for the tool to work. The Domino server can be running 7.x but the 8.x code must be available.
