A series of DAOS (Domino Attachment and Object Service) issues have been identified and fixed by IBM. We recommend that any customer running DAOS apply this interim fix or a later release that addresses these issues. Domino 8.5.1 Fix Pack 1 Interim Fix 1 is available to address these DAOS issues.

The package can be downloaded from Fix Central:

8.5.1 FP1 customers can download and install Domino 8.5.1 Fix Pack 1 Interim Fix 1 to receive the DAOS fixes before 8.5.1 FP2 is available. Customers already running with a Domino hotfix for issues not listed below should open a PMR to have a combination hotfix built. The hotfix would be on Domino 8.5.1 Fix Pack 1, because that is a prerequisite baseline due to other DAOS content in that Fix Pack. The following table lists the hotfix versions per platform for this interim fix.
