I have a 10.6.8 server that provides services (DNS, DHCP, OD, AFP, Mail, Calendar, Address Book, Web, and Push notification) to my home/business network. I use network accounts with AFP network home folders. All services and apps have been working flawlessly with 10.6.xx clients.
I recently purchased a new MacBook Air that is running 10.7.2 Lion. I also recently upgraded my Mac Pro to 10.7.2 Lion from 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.
After the upgrade, I am now seeing multiple copies of files appear in the Trash such as:
This happens whenever any app that accesses the Address Book database for autocomplete is launched (Mail, Skype, etc.). Emptying the trash fails because the files are in use. If I close all apps, sometimes the Trash will empty and sometimes it won't. Have had to clean out the .Trash folder with rm -Rfd * in the terminal; sometimes I have to ssh into my network account on the server to get this to work. Running the command in the terminal on the locally mounted network home does not work.
I have a CARDDAV account with all my addressbook entries on the 10.6.8 server; this problem seems to be worse if the CARDDAV account is configured in Address Book on the 10.7.2 client. I have tried removing the CARDDAV account and also moving the ~/Library/Application Support/Addressbook/ folder and relaunching Address Book. Neither results in the cessation of creation of the AddressBook-v22.abcddb.1.incompatible files in the Trash.
Also, when the CARDDAV account is configured in Address Book on the 10.7.2 client, it constantly tries to sync with the 10.6.8 server, and makes substantial numbers of duplicated groups call "Addressbook" and "My Contacts." However, the contacts are not duplicated in the Address Book on the 10.7.2 client. The Address Book server log shows continuous connections and PROPFIND requests from the 10.7.2 client. The CARDDAV data on the server appears to be intact as it works perfectly with iOS 5 clients (iPhone 4, and iPad) and 10.6.8 clients and is not damaged or duplicated.
I am using the same network account on both my Mac Pro and the MacBook Air. On the MAcBook Air, the account is mobile, with a synced portable home directory. I am no longer logging into 10.6.8 systems with this account as I have migrated all the preferences to 10.7.2. I have the same issues when using either computer.
I'm not sure if these two behaviours are related? Is anyone else having similar issues?
All the other services are configued and working fine on the 10.7.2 clients (iCal, Mail, etc).
