You are probably aware that you can only have access with Administrator privileges if you are the only user logged into the Catalogue. So, first you must log off all other users. You now re-access the Catalogue (still served), with your access level set for Administrator. However, although you are the only one connected, the client interface menu choices indicate that you are only logged on at Publisher level. How then, do you get Administrator access?
Well, you could unserve the Catalogue and open it directly in file sharing mode. Fine if you have access to that location - not necessarily the case on a large network. Luckily there is a way round this, as implied by the cryptic note at the bottom of the Manual page 229. If you unserve and then re-serve the Catalogue, it automatically opens in Administrator mode by default - you can now do your edits. As soon as you close the Catalogue, your next access will be at the maximum of Publisher level - unless you unserve and re-serve the Catalogue again.
This situation was tested without fully set-up password and with user-based access. In a user-based system with privilege levels set, you still encounter the 'default' publisher level access when trying to administer your Catalogues.
