Lotus Notes Access Control List Requirement
To obtain consistent security information from a Domino Server, the server's Access Control List (ACL) must be configured in such a way that Database or Document ACL are a subset of the server's ACL.
This means that it is required that Databases or Documents, in their Access Control List options, do not have allow access entries to users or groups which do not have server access rights. This is required to avoid unauthorized members to access crawled information once it has been published to a search engine.
