What does the following mean?

 

The server responded with

“400”

to operation CalDAVUpdateShareesQueuableOperation

 

And what use are such inscrutabe messages; I already know something is wrong.

    To any hapless person who comes this way:

    I fixed the problem, i.e. I made the problem go away for the moment.

    I had deleted a google caldav from my calender list since I was in any case not enabled.

    I previously had confusing things happen with multiple caldav's (whatever they are)

    I restored the google calendar and left it disabled.

    The offending message went away.

    Perhaps there were common events on both calendars, but it is not obvious why I cannot delete one without effecting the other.

    Nevertheless, the "server responded with '400' .... " message is totally useless to the me, the user, and did not help me resolve the problem.

    If there is a conflict, the problem is not solved; I've just returned to the previous ambious state.

    Had this same issue with a calendar in iCloud running Mountain Lion 10.8.2.  Just deleted the calendar account in iCal and re-added it in my iCloud System Preference.  Calendar reset and no more error message.

    Guido79, could you please post instructions on how to delete the calendar account in iCal and re-add it in the iCloud system preferences? Thank you.

    Guido79, could you please post instructions on how to delete the calendar account in iCal and re-add it in the iCloud system preferences? Thank you.

    Sure.  Here's how to do it:

     

    - Open Preferences from the Calendar menu in iCal.

    - Click on Accounts pane next to General.

    - Select the CalDAVcalendar that is not working properly (in my case it was called "iCloud") and delete it by clicking on the minus button. 

    - After you delete the account, you can either re-add it from within iCal by clicking the plus button in Accounts or you can add the calendar by going to System Preferences-> Mail, Contacts & Calendars and selecting the appropriate account that has your calendar.  Check the checkbox next to "Calendars & Reminders".

    - This should re-add your calendar and it should now refresh without the previous error message.

     

    Hope this helps!  Guido79

    Thank you very much Guido79! I have had a problem with certain calendars updating since I upgraded to Mountain Lion and this fixed them all!  I can't begin to tell you just how much I appreciate your help.  Thanks again!

    This helped me out as well. I rencently purchased an iPhone and decided to use iCloud and in doing so, some how messed iCal.  I was receiving the same dialog message. Thank you very much Guido79!

    How do I remove the "this fixed my problem" from my reponse and put it on guido79's response.   Seems to have helped some people.  -j

    How do I remove the "this fixed my problem" from my response

    I believe you should be able to.  Found this post from another Discussion topic:

     

    "Once you have marked a question as "answered" (not "Solved", which refers to the green star atached to a post, instead of the whole topic), you can decide to mark it as "not answered" again (you have to provide a quick explanation though). I think you can also remove a "Solved" star, although you may need to mark the question as not answered beforehand."

     

    Cheers!   Guido79
