What release Domino do you use in this case? I see this message only in relation with R4 or R5... So it still happens in R9?

I assume you need indeed more rights on the server. When you change a Group, you'll have to wait some time before all changes become effective. Maybe you just have to try later again today?

Domino 9.0.1
I waited about 2 hours (assuming it's replication -my replication interval is 5 minutes)

No, it's not replication, it's internal tables, it should take less than 30 minutes, and there is some command that should speed it up but I'm not familiar with it.

Is he server itself in the ACL, as Manager?

What's in the Configuration document for your server?

"Allowed to track messages       The names of servers and/or users allowed to track messages on this server.
If you leave this field blank (default), only members of the LocalDomainServers group are authorized to track messages on this server. If you add any entries to this field, you must list all servers and/or users that are allowed to track messages on this server."

The message store is a lot more secure than the other databases, and for some good reasons. I've never seen the message, so all I can say is that you'll get into trouble if you don't follow the directions...

Sorry I cannot be more helpful. Maybe you have to open a ticket at IBM for this issue?
