Nnooo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
Hi I have just installed OSX Leopard server and got my accounts set up. However I am getting some problems with iCal Server. When I try to connect to the webpage for each calendar I get:

Error from server: Error processing calendar data (210)

Now the Wiki's and blogs work fine but I cannot get the calendars to work at all. Is there anyway to rebuild them or check what is going wrong?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.6), 2GB Ram, 120BG HD and Black Case :)

    Same here. You think they'd have tried this before they shipped it.

    I can't get iCal to see it either.
  • Nnooo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    If it is any help when I try to create a new ical calendar on the server from inside a clients ical by going ical>file>new calendar>"myservername" I get the following message:

    Request for account "myservername" failed.

    The server responded with
    "HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized"

    I am presuming these things are related but cannot work out how there it is unauthorized as I am managing to log onto the server and also schedule Time Machine backups across the network...
  • John Slaughter Level 1 Level 1 (140 points)
    How did you get iCal to see it? It tells me the user doesn't exist when I try and add it to the accounts tab. Is the server just the domain name?

    Hi John I think you may be having a different problem or need to be more clear about what is going wrong.

    My problems are:
    *1) Error from server: Error processing calendar data (210)*

    On the SERVER I create some users and groups. I assign the users to the appropriate groups e.g. 'Project Name' and tell the group that I want it to have a calendar, wiki etc (all this is done in Server Preferences).

    On a CLIENT I then go to the web calendar and it gives me the error 'Error from server: Error processing calendar data (210)', while I can still access the Wikis, create pages, add stuff to the blogs etc. The calendar is no joy

    *2) Request for account "myservername" failed.*

    *The server responded with*
    *"HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized"*

    On a CLIENT machine I open iCal and then File>New Calendar>'MyServerName' to create a user calendar on the server. I then get the error :"Request for account "myservername" failed.

    The server responded with
    "HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized"

    I don't know if these are related, I would assume they are. I really need to get this service working so as I requested above any information on how to rebuild the database or get this working would be great.

    John if you go through my steps above and have the same problem please can you confirm this?
  • John Slaughter Level 1 Level 1 (140 points)
    1, I confirm those results too.

    2. I go to iCal and go to File and see an option for New Calendar, but it just creates a new local calendar. When I go to prefs and Accounts I can't add my server because I don't know what my server address is for CalDAV. When I enter the server's DNS name it fails with "Account info not found" as if the user is not enabled for calendaring, but that box is checked in Workgroup Manager and the calendar service is selected.

    Are you bound to the machine via OD? That apparently works I hear, but it's supposed to work not bound also.
  • Nnooo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Yeah I think I am bound to the OD. I set up the server first using the new simple setup stuff and then I set up the the client machines using the leopard installer and this binds them to the directory on install.

    However I get these problems even if I try the same stuff on the server itself.
  • SPSIE Level 1 Level 1 (90 points)
    I have the same problem

    "Error from server: Error processing calendar data (210)"

    I reinstalled the Server and went through the Simple setup again. No dice.
  • James Craig Level 1 Level 1 (130 points)
    It sounds like your iCal Server is not running. Try restarting it?

    On a standard install: Server Prefs > Services > iCal > On.
    On an advanced config: Server Admin > servername.local > iCal > Start iCal.
  • SPSIE Level 1 Level 1 (90 points)
    I've got a 'green' light on the iCal server and toggle it on and off. iCal service is assigned to the user (me). Still the error comes up every time the 'Calendar' is accessed through the Workgroup page, and when a entry is attempted in the calendar.
  • Nnooo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I too have tried this and the iCal server is running. I am thinking it is a permissions problem.

    Any suggestions?
  • Nnooo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Ok I managed to get this working today after a long slog and no help from the apple support call center (they are as stumped as I am).

    1) In Server Admin make sure your server in the lists on the right is listed as its something.somethingelse address and not something.local. If it is remove the server from Server Admin and re-add it by putting the something.somethingelse address in the dialog box (this will not delete your server or anything).
    2) Go to iCal in Server Admin and then click settings. Change authentication to Any Method.
    3) Now fire up a web browser and try the web calendar, they should work.
    4) Now to get iCal working... Open iCal and then go to preferences>accounts click the server settings tab and untick use Kerberos for authentication. It will ask for your username and password. Bingo it should all work

    Now the downside it appears is that you are using a less secure authentication method. But until someone can point out to me how the **** to get kerberos working properly (clearly it is not) I'll stick with functionality over security and lack of functionality.

    I too and getting the same message. Error from server: Error processing calendar data (210)
    here is some more info that may or may not help.
    Upon getting the error I opened safari's activity viewer, and check on the progress for opening the calendar. At the bottom of the list of 29 loaded items, there are two items labeled RPC2. When you click on one of those, you get an error page that is as follows:

    (I am not sure what this means, but it might help.)

    This error is a total red herring. It occurs because you can't perform GET requests on /RPC2 (it's an XML-RPC endpoint) You have to POST a valid XML-RPC request to it.
