Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2010 12:01 PM (in response to Roger Roach)I'm having the same issue: Zimbra at work, monthly meeting (2nd Wednesday of every month), and the meeting shows up every week on iCal. This then propagates to every week on Zimbra.
The only difference is that I sync Zimbra and iCal using CalDav not Zimbra connector. The problem started with 10.6.3. I have already verified that nothing has changed with respect to Zimbra at work during this time.
Thoughts or fixes anyone?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 20, 2010 5:57 PM (in response to Myrmecophaga)This bug has been reported in Zimbra's bugzilla system: https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=46009
It looks like an iCal bug.iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 22, 2010 10:06 PM (in response to Elliot Wilen)I tried grabbing iCal 4.0.1 from a Mac that hadn't yet been updated, but running it under 10.6.3 still shows the recurring event problem.
Ultimately my solution was to downgrade by running the 10.6 installation DVD on top of my existing OS, then installing the 10.6.2 combo update, and finally installing everything else recommended by Software Update except 10.6.3 of course.iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 22, 2010 10:08 PM (in response to Elliot Wilen)Oops, I forgot to mention that you may need to delete your CalDAV account and then reconfigure it, in order to clear out the incorrect cached data.
Also, some incorrect data may have been re-synced back to the CalDAV server, so you'll have to delete those events and recreate them.iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2010 5:54 PM (in response to Elliot Wilen)Looks like it's fixed in 10.6.4.iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 16, 2010 7:41 AM (in response to Elliot Wilen)After updating to 10.6.4, if you have a Zimbra Connector in System Preferences and are using a CalDAV account in iCal, you must delete the Zimbra Connector. Otherwise it will keep multiplying the calendars in iCal, adding duplicates for as long as iCal is open. Also delete the CalDAV account and re-enter it. I believe you should not use the Zimbra connector, but just use CalDAV for calendars and CardDAV / LDAP / Exchange for address book syncing.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 16, 2010 11:36 AM (in response to Property)I'm not seeing the problem you refer to, with calendars multiplying in iCal. I'm using the Zimbra iSync Connector 6.0.2169.
Note that with any reasonably-current version of the iSync connector + Mac OS 10.5 or higher, the connector only uses iSync to sync contacts. The option in the second tab to "Sync my iCal calendars using CalDAV" simply creates the CalDAV account for you. You can certainly create it by hand in iCal if you wish, but that's not necessary in my experience.
As for address book syncing, it's true that iSync is giving way to CardDAV, but that has only just been introduced, and requires at least ZCS 6.0.7 (released yesterday) to work properly with Snow Leopard. See http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=46297
Even now CardDAV has some significant limitations, see http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=46359 and http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=46458
LDAP is useful but only for autocompletion, not for syncing per se. Also, in a stock Zimbra configuration, it only serves up the Global Address List, not users' personal address books. Also, for security sake, the LDAP on Zimbra should either be firewalled off from the outside world (making it inaccessible to users who aren't on the same LAN with server), or set up to use secure LDAP with authentication. Problem with the latter is, I haven't been able to get Address Book to work in that scenario. If anyone has done so, please share your insights.
There's no Exchange address book syncing unless you have Exchange as your back-end. It uses Exchange Web Services...so, not really pertinent to Zimbra.iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 17, 2010 12:06 PM (in response to Property)I can confirm this behavior. I'm attempting to understand it better now prior to opening a bug report with Zimbra.MBP, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 17, 2010 12:30 PM (in response to shawn_h)Shawn, what version of the Zimbra iSync connector do you have installed? (Also, make sure you pass that information along to them when you raise it with Zimbra.) If you open a report in Zimbra bugzilla, please post the URL here or in the Zimbra forums. I'd like to track the issue. Thanks.iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 17, 2010 12:37 PM (in response to Elliot Wilen)Using Connector version 6.0.2423, which I believe is the latest that dropped this week. However, another user in my organization has reported the same problem and uses a Connector that is a version or two outdated.
We have commercial support w/ Zimbra. I've opened a support case with them. More to come!MBP, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
