Why do you want (or need) multiple address books?
DominoDevAuthor Commented:
Because that is requirement from customer.
Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
Ok, I should have asked my question differently. For what purpose does your customer need multiple address books?

Maybe the solution is to see what Directory Assistance can do for you (see the Help database). It can be used to join multiple address books. You have to change the configuration of the Domino server, create the (usually) da.nsf database and add its name to the Server document.

I have other directory on same server which is not registered on da.nsf but still I can see them while I add them in ACL
Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
Is the new address book derived fron names.ntf? Can you verify that, in the Database Properties box, the new address book has the type Address Book?
DominoDevAuthor Commented:
yes it is type addressbook

I couldn't tell you right now why that works (maybe you have a local replica end you added that address book to the local address books in your Notes client), but I'm very sure that Directory Assistance works. Could you please test with da.nsf?
Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
Each additional N&A book should be put in a different document. You can have many assistance documents if you want. Just copy and paste a database link into a new document, on the Domino tab. And no real need to restart the server.
