"X needs to create replica right to server..."

When I try to move a mail/user from one server to another, I receive this message: "X needs to create replica right to server in order to move mail." (This message appears just after selecting the mail file of the new server)

If you do not have 'create replica' access in the Domino server security section of the server document, you will get this error. Although you think you are just 'moving' the user via the admin client, what adminp is really doing in the backend is making a replica of the database from one server to another then going back and removing the old replica after the replication is complete and the nab has been changed to reflect the new server name.
