In the past, it was /Library/CalendarServer and /Library/AddressBook. But they're not there now. It also seems they're omited from the Upgrade and Migration guide (I'm migrating, not upgrading)

    Calendar and AddressBook have been combined under the hood into a single service which lives in /Library/Server/Calendar and Contacts/ .  When you upgrade/migrate your Snow data will get imported into the system Postgres the first time you start either the Calendar or AddressBook services.

    If you want to migrate addressbook data after the fact, copy your old addressbooks folder to /Library/Server/Calendar and Contacts/Documents/addressbooks and restart the addressbook service.  The server will notice the existence of that folder and import the data into Postgres.

    Are you sure there is only one place where address book and calendars are stored and that is  /Library/Server/Calendar and Contacts?


    I stopped the ical and address book services, replaced the sqlite files with a backup one week old, restarted the server and resetted the calendar and address book clients.


    I was expected clients would load these calendar and address book data (one week old). But to my surprise clients loaded again the TODAY calendar and address book (from where?).


    What am I doing wrong?
