"NAB" your Domino directory problems before they spread

We are a large organization with fourteen divisions that are in the administrative sense "autonomous." Though I am the administrator for the National Home Office I do not have access to all of the servers in all of the divisions. Unfortunately this is true for some T2 servers.

Our address book has been victimized by corruption and mistakes made in the other divisions. Notifications don't always work especially with corruption. Because of this we came up with a replication topology just for the address book.

T2 ---> Pull only ---> NAB Server ---> Push only (manual) ---> T1 ---> Push only ---> T2

The T2 doesn't have access to pull from the NAB Server or push to the T1 server.

This could also work with other databases having content and replication issues.
