Abstract. The aim of this paper is to show that the automorphism and isometry groups of the infinite direct sum $\ell_\infty({\msbm N}, {\cal B}({\cal H}))$ of operator algebras are topologically reflexive which, as one of our former results shows, is not the case with the ``scalar algebra" $\ell_\infty $.
