Hi !

I have a Apple Intel Xserve running 10.5.8

It is being used as our iCal Server

We have just had a server crash, where we had to turn the server off/on

Now all users calendars are showing offline triangle
and accessing any calendar gives "The calendar was not found on the server"

I can see all the data on the server where it has always been

Can some please give me some urgent help to get this working again

I have restarted the service
It reports it is all working correctly

I have restarted some of the clients but still have the same error

Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi,
    When your server restored OD, the user IDs (UID) may have changed. The calendars are associated with UIDs called principal_uid. To reconnect them if changed, a solution is to replace the UID in WGM Inspector with the previously assigned value.

    Using a restore OD archive or importing a previously exported user profile preserves the UID across restoration.

    HTH,
    Harry

    Hi,
    At this stage I can only offer a couple of suggestions.
    1) start a new account and see if you get the correct behavior with a new calendar. If so then OD and iCalServer are coordinating. The effort would be to restore previous calendar data.
    2) if you feel comfortable with Terminal and the Command Line read
    about calendarservermanageprincipals at

    $ man calendarservermanageprincipals

    You can look at the account references in
    /etc/caldavd/caldavd.plist

    HTH,
