Enforcing consistent ACL limits database access

I've got an R5 database that must have "enforce consistent ACL..." (Access Control List) turned on, since when I open it from my R6 server, I get a message that says, "This database has local access protection." I have tried to access it with the server ID -- same problem. How can I access that database? The IDs are all newer than the R5 database.
Local access protection is different than the "enforce consistent" option. Local protection means that the database is encrypted, using a person's ID file as the encryption key. You need to sign on as the person who encrypted the file. It sounds like you will have to search for older IDs that might have been in use previously. Good luck.
