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:
- Using the Domino Administrator client, navigate to the People & Groups tab.
- 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.
- On the Basics tab, change the name of the group and click Save & Close to save the group using the new name.
