A client sent me a db but the access is denied, (because of the acl, I think), even on local. How can I access this db?
The quickest way to try to get around this problem is to add a group to your local address book that is called administrators. In this group, include you own id. Log out of Notes and come back in, then try accessing the database before you access any servers. Many notes databases have 'Administrators' listed in the ACL with manager access. If this doesn't work, contact your client. If the db they sent uses groups, you can add a group listed in the ACL to your local address book, otherwise, they will need to send you a copy with a modified ACL.
