My business runs the iCal service with SSL in Snow Leopard Server (10.6.8) for our user calendars. That's been running fine for quite a while and we support ~50 users. Some users had created subcalendars that they would then share out with their teams using deligation. We found this is not a good long-term plan because when that individual leaves the company we have to move their calendar to a different user. To make this easier we decided to start using the group calendar function under the wiki server. Both the wiki and iCal service are running on the same server. We use a separate FQDN for the wiki, but obviously the IP is the same.
I've been able to successfully get people who need to edit the group calendar(s) access in iCal using CalDAV (thanks to tips from other discussions on here) and others that just want to view the calendar subscribe to it (note for other people using SSL, I did have to modify the "click here to subscribe in iCal" link to do that). Now I'm running into an issue that's only effecting Lion users so far but it's a BIG issue. For those who have their account set up in CalDAV, *sometimes* when they switch between our private LAN and their home networks or our VPN their wiki group calendar account will automatically change the "Server Path" from the group account to their individual user account. The only way to change it back is to delete and re-add the account (or edit the server path, but that takes most of my end-users longer to do).
Is this happening for anyone else? I can't find other instances in Googling this issue. I realize Apple's wiki server doesn't technically support editing group calendars in iCal but what is actually making it revert the path?
Bonus question: How the heck do you fully delete accounts in iCal? As a troubleshooting step I blew out the following files on my local machine:
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist (multiple plists, incl. the helper file)
~/Library/Preferences/Saved Application State/com.apple.iCal.savedState
Deleted all keychain access files related to iCal
After deleting those when I open iCal->Preferences->Accounts there's nothing there, and as soon as I blink my eyes all of my CalDAV accounts come back (both my company ones and iCloud). My co-worker running 10.5.8 did the same thing (minus the Saved Application State, obviously) and he sees the same thing. Where the heck are those settings kept?!
Thanks SO much for any help!
