I used useridA to author a Notes DB application, then set useridA as the only one authorized to open or modify the application.  Later on, I changed my userid to useridB then deleted useridA from the server.  Unofortunately, when I now try to modify/update the application, it says I am not authorized to do so.
What should I do?  Can I just recreate useridA to gain access?

You have practically answered your own question !!!!

You can simply recreate a new user useridA , because the only thing stored in the ACL is the Full Distinguished Name of the User not any public or private key info.. So if you recreate a user with EXACLTY the same Name then the server will just think it is the same person ( for ACL Access anyway)...

There are other ways to get around this problem but I think recreating the user id is the easiest one...

When you recreate the user id use the server the database is on as the registration server , that way the user will be in that replicate of the NAB straight away

Hope this helps !!
