LotusScript does not provide a method to open a database on a server with the replicaID. You must know the name and path of the file where the database is. However, in a large international organization you may not always have control of the path to the database on other servers, making the only reliable information you have the replica id.
The script can be placed in the script library or used in situ to provide a handle on the database object, if you can provide the server where the database is and the replica id.
