The relinker =md5 Directory is NOT a Central Repository for the Message Store

(Doc ID 1956355.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 6.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A few customers seem to have come to the misunderstanding that the =md5 directory is the central repository for the message store.

For example, see the discussion about Disabling Hard Linking (Single Message Strategy) in the Messaging Server OTN forum.

This article explains the purpose of the =md5 directory in each partition, when you should use the relinker feature, when you should stop using it, and don't forget to clean up.
