Hi Everyone,

Facing a strange issue , recently one of the user start sending mails by name "notes admin", which is our mail admin user.

After checking found that the owner of user database is notes admin, but now I cannot change it back ,as for user change button is missing.

Please suggest.

Thanks in advance.

Possible Solution

The info is stored in the Calendar Profile

 

Here is code you can email in a button to the user that will remove the profile

 

Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set db=session.CurrentDatabase
Set doc=db.GetProfileDocument("CalendarProfile")
Call doc.remove(True)
If doc Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "Profile Document Was Successfully Removed"
Else
MsgBox "Profile Document WAS NOT Removed",48
End if

Hello Rahul!

You must use Notes Admin to change it.
Just the current owner of a database can change it.

Thanks for the reply

Hi guys ,

 

Thanks for the prompt reply.

  @barry click button  did not work , is there any other method to rerfresh/delete calender profile.

  @rodrigo yes I am using admin console to do the task, but it also does not have permission to change the owner of this particular database.

Please suggest.

 

Regards

 

Rahul

Well, you could try overwriting the name.

I don't know exactly what is administratively locked, but you could try it.

@SetProfileField("CalendarProfile"; "Owner"; @Prompt([okcanceledit]; "Enter the user name"; "Enter the FULL CANONICAL NAME of the user you wish to add"; @UserName))

I've run into this issue as well...

And, as I recall, if you add your Admin ID to the database ACL as Manager, you will have the ability to update the owner via the dialog. Then you can remove the ACL entry.

I do not believe 'Full Access Administration' will work.
