The DXTools QMove Application Package

DX Tools

Distributions for Version 1.4.2

QMove was originally developed to solve the problem of redistributing notes databases across multiple storage volumes without shutting down the Domino server or limiting the use of databases while they are being moved between storage volumes. Having addressed the problem of storage redistribution it was noted that QMove had other capabilities such as creating media backups and deleting databases already plumbed in and so minor code changes turned it into a more generic Notes database storage management tool. The name QMove was retained as storage redistribution remains the principal use of the utility.

QMove is fast and resilient. Multiple databases can be processed in parallel allowing sustained high rates of data transfer.

The QMove application is constructed as a Domino Server Add-In task, as such it is perfectly suited to unattended operations.
QMove is a C++ application constructed on the DXCommon application kernel supporting Domino version from 6.0 through 8.5 on both Widows & Linux server platforms.

The move engine at the heart of the QMove application is mature and well tested component having been used in production environments for many years. It has been used in different configurations to move over 50,000 databases with more than 50Tb of data.

Installing the QMove Control Database

The installation of the control database is done from a “Virtual Template” that is available on the internet, this section assumes that you have available and installed the Remote Database Create (Windows:
RDBCreate.exe Linux: rdbcreate) tool. If you do not have this tool then download the DXTool source for RDBCreate and build it. Refer to the “Using RDBCreate” manual.

Install the Database

From a command window go to the Notes Executable directory where RDBCreate exists enter the following command.
RDBCreate [server name] [database name] [templateURL] -V


[server name] is the abbreviated name of the server on which you want to install the control database.
[database name] is the name of the control database relative to the notes data directory.
[templateURL] is the URL for the Virtual Template you wish to install.
