Give Yourself As A Administrator Access To All Notes Db's And Templates On The Server

This is a simple scriptagent that you can run on the server to give your Notes
administratorgroup Manager access to all Notesdb's and templates on the server.
Default you have no Manager access to templates and other Notesdb's. To avoid
the hassle of having to modify the ACL of each db and template locally, you can
run this script on the server and he will go through all files with the
extension .nsf and .ntf and put there your Notes administrators group in there
with Manager access.

To use the script, simply create an agent and paste this script in it and run
it on the server. You will need to have the ability to "Run Unrestricted
Agents" in the server document in order for it to work.
