Upgrade problems.....

Posted on 2000-05-17

Hi experts,

After my upgrade to release 5.03 (server side only), some clients can't connect to certain databases, while other people can access the database.
I have checked the ACL (wich didn't change during upgrade), and they have access to it....I'm using nested groups (a few groups in one group). When I put the member (that has problems with accessing the database) directly in the ACL or if I put the subgroup in the ACL, the problem is solved.

Please any suggestions...

P.S. the clients using notes 4.6.2a

Try and refresh (shift + f9) the group view in the NAB, or create the major group again.  Also update all the views if u hadnt already (shift+ctrl+f9)

This is a known issue that was supposed to have been fixed in 4.6.2.  I'm not sure about 4.6.2a, I would think it should have the fix.

Here's the tech note:

SPR Number:

Users Not Able to Access Servers When Part of a Nested Group


User A is a member of a Group called GroupA.  GroupA is a member of a group called GroupB.  The GroupB is used as a security group in the "Restrictions" section of a server.  When User A attempts to perform the desired action (create replica databases, create new databases, access server, etc.), the restrictions are not respected as configured.  When configuring the server restrictions and not using a nested group, everything works as expected.


This issue was reported to Lotus Quality Engineering and has been addressed in Domino Release 4.6.2.  The group called GroupA can be used in the "Restrictions" section as a temporary workaround.

Hi Ghassan,

I've have tried to create a new major group with another name, but this didn't help. When I give the user with the problems a release 5 client, the problems are over....
