What is the fastest way to grant access after you have added a user to a group?

Hello everybody,

I just added a user to a group in the address book order to gain access to a database on that server. What would be the fastest way to grant him access without him having to wait an hour or even overnight? Would that be opening the names.nsf database while holding down the [Shift] and [Ctrl] keys and locating the ($ServerAccess) and ($Users) hidden views and updating them by holding down the [Shift] key and then pressing the [F9]? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Usually an F5 and login, or a Notes restart should do. It also depends on the release of the server. AFAIK refreshing the views isn't going to help, since info is stored in internal tables in the server. These need to be refreshed.

The server is on 6.5. I was hoping to avoid a restart of the service. Any other workarounds that you know of?

Not me, but let's wait for other. You can test this yourself, of course: change a group, and verify how long it takes to get you in the group. Click on the special icon at the bottom right of the screen, left to the location indicator, to see all groups and roles.

I've used "dbcache flush" from the server console after I add in a user to a group and they get access to the db within a  few minutes or so after that.
