Disabling extended access

Disabling extended access takes effect immediately and irreversibly removes any extended ACL restrictions that have been set and so will alter security checking for the database

You will remove all restrictions set on forms and fields, and the database ACL will no longer be restricted by extended ACL access settings. In addition, the database ACL will no longer be enforced for Notes® client lookups to the directory, and the domain Configuration Settings will resume as the access control mechanism for anonymous LDAP searches of the directory.

Disabling extended access removes all evidence of extended ACL settings, information that cannot be recovered unless you restore it from a recent backup or archive of the directory, or unless you write down the settings prior to disabling them and then reapply them manually later.

CAUTION: Do not disable extended access if you have any uncertainty about doing so.
Note: Disabling extended access may take a few minutes on a very large directory database. The Notes® client or Domino® Administrator client is unavailable for other purposes during this process.

To disable extended access:

  1. Open the database and select File > Application > Access Control.
  2. Make sure you have Manager access in the database ACL.
  3. Click Advanced and then select the Enable Extended Access check box to remove the selection.
  4. At this prompt, click Yes if you are sure you want to disable extended access; otherwise, click No:

    You see the message Warning: Disabling extended access removes all extended access control restrictions that have been set. Do you want to continue?

  5. Click OK in the Access Control List dialog box.
  6. At this message, click OK:
    Disabling extended access control restrictions. This may take a while.

The status bar indicates when the process is complete.
