During server configuration, let me name the group added to template ACLs instead of assuming it is LocalDomainAdmins

When configuring a new server, it prompts to add LocalDomainAdmins to the ACL of all templates.  Instead, this should prompt to enter the admin group name to be used.
I have yet to find an environment that actually uses the LocalDomainAdmins group.

While I like the idea, just wanted to let you know that I actually do use the LocalDomainAdmins group (just because of this reason) so I don't have to manually add another group to all the templates.

The best practice for years was to use a different admin group to for security. Always setup servers that way, until the Domino installer added this nice feature. Now, it is difficult to get people to see the logic of doing it differently. Nice feature provided, but could use a slight enhancement.

While you mention it, I also NEVER use OtherDomainServers, simply because I don't know what level of access it has without inspecting everything. Before you say the database catalog has that info, note it only has it for databases published in the catalog and even if I fix things to what I want, that must be repeated after every install or upgrade that may introduce databases with the wrong settings.
