The term "Notes Admin" is a little unclear, because it is used in different ways at different organizations. So let me give you a couple different answers.
- You certainly can create a group that can only be edited by certain people. You set the list of editors on the Administration tab within that group document. This only works, however, for people who have Author access to the Domino Directory. Anyone with higher access can bypass this restriction. So you can create a group, say Group1, that can only be edited by people within that group or any other group you choose.
- In general, however, the "Notes Admin" account is given Manager access to the Domino Directory (names.nsf). This is sort of necessary, so that admin people can do what they need to run the system. Anyone with Manager access (or physical access to the server room) can do whatever they want to any groups.
