How to rename Lotus Notes groups

Learn how to rename Lotus Notes groups using the Domino Adminstrator client.

The following is tip #9 from "Managing Lotus Notes and Domino users and groups -- 10 tips in 10 minutes," excerpted from Chapter 15 of the book Lotus Notes and Domino 6 System Administrator Exam Cram 2, published by Sams Publishing.

Groups can be renamed using the Administrator client. Editing a group requires ACL access to the Domino Directory with one of the following defined security assignments:

At least Editor with Create Documents privilege
The UserModifier role

CAUTION: Care should be taken when renaming a group, because renaming a group affects users and their access within the domain. In the event that a group needs to be renamed, notify the users and system administrators who communicate with the server.

Follow these steps to rename a group:

  1. Using the Domino Administrator client, navigate to the People & Groups tab.

  2. Expand the Domino Directories item and select Groups. A list of the valid groups on the server displays in the main navigation window. Select the group that needs to be edited and then click Edit Group.

  3. On the Basics tab, change the name of the group and click Save & Close to save the group using the new name.
