Ok, it seems to be a doozy! I have taken over the role of Lotus Admin in an environment where Lotus is a very old version, its only used for database purposes (no mail) and has limited admin accessibility. I can log in and it does seem that I am an admin. There is no NotesAdmin id file that I can see so I cannot log in as NotesAdmin. I have a power user whos about to expire and I cannot recertify the user because either I dont know how ( i have tried every standard procedure) or I cannot because of bad config. When I try to create a new user, it does not create user.id file. When I copy another user, it copies that users ID file making the login useless for security reason. May as well give access to my user id. I need a way to "hack" or reconfigure stuff to maybe create new reg server. I need "hi-end" help and not links to possible solutions. Lotus Admins only, please respond.
