Does the database have LocalDomainServers in the ACL  if so you can add entrys from a server your admin should be able to do this.  There are a number of tools out their as well to manage the ACL and add and remove entries such as PowerTools, SA+ etc  which can run agents signed by server IDs (and therefore in LocalDomainServer groups)

building on what sg said, you can try to open the database from the server. You will need physical access to the server or some remote softare and you can try to run nlnotes.exe and see if you can open the database.

Haven't tried the tool that sysExpert suggests.. but I think it works similarly to agents I used to program to accomplish the same thing.  You create an agent on a local database that will update the acl, set it to scheduled, and to only run on the server, replicate it up to the server and then sign it with the server ID.

This assumes that the server has access.. :)   brwiggins is the most direct, and can be done if the "enforce a consistent access control" isn't checked on the database.. that would prevent it from being opened on the server while the server is running.

Another free utility is mkmgr http://www.wnc.net.au/wnc/website.pma/p?OpenPage&name=MkMgr

This needs to be place onto the server and then you can run from the console  load mkmgr dbname.nsf groupname or username

I actually replicated the database local, deleted the server copy, changed acl, then replicated back.  Fixed.  I did this before your solutions so i spilled the point to all of you.  It looks like all you answers would work great.  Thanks
