My wife can't share her calendar with me, but I can share with her. Both on Mountain Lion ,both on  iMacs less than a year old. Here's the error message:

I tried going through icloud.com (we both have separate accounts), same result, but the error messages said there was a server error.

 

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!


iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    Weird! I'm looking at the picture (error message) in my post as I type this reply...I wonder what could cause the image to not appear when you read the original post? Here, let me re-insert it:

    It's visible now, and not a lot of help either

     

    So step by step, how did you setup the share?

    I had previously set up my iCloud calendar, contacts, and data. This was several weeks ago (I moved everything over from Outlook for Mac 2011). So far, so good.

    Two days ago I set up my wife's iMac. Update all software, transferred her calendar info from Entourage (about 2007) on a 2007 MacBook running Tiger, to iCal on her MacBook. Then I imported the iCal data via an external harddrive into her iMac. I then imported that data into Calendar.Worked perfectly. Then I enabled iCloud via system preferences, allowed calender to merge , disabled her local calendar, and subscribed to a US holidays calendar. Worked perfectly. Then I clicked on the icloud calendar's broadcast icon, and set me up as sharing view only. Hit "done", and that's when the message appeared. I went to iCloud.com , logged in with her account, and tried to set up sharing the same way there. Different appearing message, but same message: server error.

    I went to my iMac, and set up my wife as sharing, view only, for my calendar. She got an invitation email, accepted the invitation, and presto chango, she can now view my calendar.

    Over 2 days, I've tried to get her's to work perhaps a dozen times, thinking it was a temporary server glitch...no joy.

    I searched in Support.com, and found one similar message, but with no reply yet (was dated 7/16/13).

    Slightly confused regarding which is which so, have you shared her calendar from her machine (same as the method used to share yours with her)

    I have tried to share her calendar from her machine using the identical method I shared mine from my machine. That's what fails, and I get the message. So, my calendar is shared with her, hers it not shared with me.

    Other than standard troubleshooting (sign both machines out of iCloud then back in, reboot both machines) I don't have any suggestions for you.

     

    One thing to try.

     

    Make sure that neither account has alarms set to None, if one does (hers really) set it to something else, then share. If the share can be established you can reset the alarm.

    I signed her out of iCloud, then signed her back up. The sharing was then successful.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
