Lotus Notes Exception - Error validating user's agent execution access


Usually encountered when dealing with Web Query Open/Save agents.


Usually occurs because the ID that is being used to run the Agent or the ID last used to sign it is not listed in the Domino Direcotry (NAB) and being allowed to run Agents.

because the ID is changed name.The new ID username isn't in ECL.So you must sign the database with the new ID.

I wanted to run an agent and received this error. I added the "default" user to the access control list of the agent, and stop getting that error (now I got another error, but that's another war LOL)

The agent is a level 2 agent and only 1 is allowed.

the user doesnt have permission to run that agent (methods and operations).

The rights are domino/configuration/current server document/security/"run unrestricted methods and operations"

Open the database then View the agents and click on the sign button for each agent.

"Error validating user's agent execution access" can be: user IS NOT in the Access Server field ou IS at the Not Access Server field, in Server Document / Security / Server Access section.

U need to add your user name at the following location in your domino administrator: configuration/current server document/security: run unrestricted methods and operations

Yes go to the Agent and Disable or sign it under your username we had the same issue causing our server to restart. Took me a week to find that it was this agent that somone created...

yes the signing of Agents worked, it happened to me while viewing it, because the Agent is still signed by the previous Admins. Thanks Folks!!
