funny because for me it is opposite.
Birthday sync ok with iphone but not between my lion clients
Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2011 7:46 AM (in response to Evian)
For me it is the other way around. Birthdays sync nicely to my iphone. But since "upgrading" to Lion my calendar doesn't show newly added birthdays and old birthdays are shown without name and age. Removed the setting to show birthday calendar, now they are all gone.
Could it be that it has to do with the new account setup? I still have the separated account settings for address book (CardDav) and ical (CalDav). Should I delete them and set up a central OS X server account? Or could it be something different?

There seems to be a bug in the Lion (Client) addressbook.
The problem is also discussed here:
Currently Being ModeratedOct 13, 2011 7:37 PM (in response to Evian)
This is still present in 10.7.2 server/client. Did some testing with 10.7.2 client using Kerio CardDAV server, and bug DID NOT occur, so seems to require 10.7.x CardDav SERVER.
Here's the bug as I see it:
Lion client simply does not download birthdays from Lion server, but they are there, which is evident from an iOS device. The problem occurs if anything forces a Lion machine to re-fetch a contact with a birthday (which is the case if other client updates card, or if it's just a new Lion client), so that when that same client makes a different change to card, the entire birthday-less card is re-uploaded and birthday is lost.

I can confirm that. Unfortunately 10.7.2 does not solve this bug.

"Glad" to hear that this is a bug in lion addressbook...

No new info to add, just wanted to say a "me too" to this birthday bug.
Let's hope that Apple dedicates some work ours of their engineering team to fix this anoying bug.

I upgraded my server to 10.7.3 and tested this, and it was still busted. Then I upgraded my client to 10.7.3 and it was fixed, so I'm not sure where the bug was, but if both the server and client are on 10.7.3, this is fixed.

Good to hear that this seems to be fixed.
I will check this for myself in a couple of days
