log database is automatically created and the server is assigned Manager access in the database's Access Control List (ACL). The default access for all other users is Reader.

Content of the Domino log
The administrator cannot use the Sametime
log settings or the Sametime
Administration Tool options to determine what appears in the Domino
log. The Domino
log records information about the activities of the Domino
server on which Sametime
is installed. Generally, the default settings should provide an adequate record of server activity. However, you can record additional information in this log file by altering settings in the notes.ini file. Recording this additional information might be necessary to troubleshoot a specific system problem.
For more information, see the Maintenance section of the Domino
R5 Administration documentation.
