Automatically check database property for NSFs and NTFs

During Domino upgrades to R5, ND6 or other types of structural changes to a Lotus Domino domain, it is quite convenient to be able to check the catalog to see where my databases stand in relation to access control lists (ACLs). In other words, to see what databases may have been inadvertently left wide open to -- Default -- or Anonymous.

However, many early R4 versions of Lotus Notes did not (by default) list databases (such as mail files) in the database catalog.

So, is there a way to insure that ALL NSF and NTF files have the database property "List in database catalog" checked (other than manually checking each one of them individually)?

Also, is there a way to automatically turn this setting on for a given data directory or data subdirectory of NSF files? Thank you.
All the databases are already in the catalog. You just have to make them visible. Follow this thread on Notes.net.
