Setting up the Administration Process for database ACLs

To use the Administration Process to update and manage names in an ACL and in Readers and Authors fields, assign an administration server to the database. Use this method to specify an administration server for multiple databases.


  1. Make sure that you have Manager access in the database ACL.
  2. From the Domino® Administrator Server pane, select the server that stores the databases.
  3. Click Files, and select the databases from the Domino® data directory to which you want to assign an administration server.
  4. Click Tools > Database > Manage ACL.
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. Select Modify Administration Server setting.
  7. Select Server, select an administration server from the list, and then click OK.


When Notes® users create databases, they can specify the administration server for their databases on the Advanced panel of the database ACL. The database ACL list will automatically be updated when the Administration Process is run on the specified administration server.
