Everybody can create such a file manually and put it into the NotesData directory of his NotesClient. Through this you can then administer server databases as if they were local ones and change ACLs like a charm.
You can also create links to more servers on your client and administer them at once.
PS: Of course you need at first access to the files (databases) on the server as a mapped drive so this tip is no security leak.
