If you open the public Name & Adressbook (on a client or a server) and check its ACL, under the "Advanced"-icon, you can assign a server as administration server.
The administration server of the NAB will (in that database) take care of updating authorisations, like ACL and reader/authornames fields. E.g. when a username changes....
To make sure this AdminP process works in every other database as well (the same changed username may have been used in any database), you will need to specify an administration server in all your databases.

M.,

I think the best you could do is:

Create a new server install without using the address book from your production environment....or....if you like to test youre production server how it would react on a server upgrade...create a file copy from youre complete notes directory and put it on your test server(so no new installation, just copy the files over the existing notes directory on your test server, do not forget to copy the notes.ini...)....
That way you have an exact copy and you could test what happens if you upgrade to R5...

Important thing I saved for last.....

Do NOT start the test server on the same Network!!!!!!!

For this kind of test it's best you test it in it's own dedicated network environment.....

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!!

Good luck with your pilot!!!

Actual problem is that you are using wildcard replica of admin4.nsf database of previous server.
