Creating a Domino Directory Addressbook

I created a Domino Directory address book on the Lotus Notes server R6.  The goal is to allow users to create a new memo and have access to this new address book.  
Under the Administrator console, I have already created a Domino Directory and called it the same name as the addressbook.  What else am I missing?

Thanks in advance

I assume u want another names.nsf (Secondary address book) to be accessed by users whe they create Memos.

For this,
in the server notes.ini file in the parameter names=names.nsf

add
names=names.nsf,YourSecondAddressbook.nsf

And save the ini file and if it didn't worked, then try restarting the server.
I recommend to this procedure in a test environment.

Best of luck.
Check in Admin help on Secondary address book...

I would set up directory assistance on the server. The Lotus Administrator Help DB, shows a detailed step by step way of setting directory assistance. Here's what directory assistance does:

Directory assistance is a feature a server can use to look up information in a directory other than a local primary Domino Directory (NAMES.NSF). You can configure directory assistance to use a particular directory for any of these services:
Client authentication
Group lookups for database authorization
Notes mail addressing
LDAP service searches or referrals

madheeswar:  That didn't work. I added names=names.nsf,YourSecondAddressbook.nsf to the notes.ini file and restarted the server and the addressbook isn't detected.

twizted:  I'll look into your solution but was hoping for a quick fix like madheeswar's suggestion.

So far the only I got is the secondary addressbook.

Rubixg,
what is the file name for your secondary address book?
in that parameter names, u should keep the name of the second db. not the file name which I have given.

so, if your second NAb name is names2.nsf then it should lool like:
names=names.nsf,names2.nsf
save notes.ini and then restart the server.

Sorry I meant to write names = names.nsf, meci.nsf  and saved notes.ini, restarted and didn't work.  
Am I missing another step?

Cascaded address books was the old way of setting up multiple address books on your domino server. With directory assistance you don't need to be restarting the domino server everytime you add an address book or when your trying to implement it into your domino domain.

The last link madheeswar posted explains the process very well.
