Group calendars on 10.6.4 client machines no longer work with iCal Server

After updating 2 client machines to 10.6.4 I realized my group calendars no longer work in iCal.
I get "Server Responded With an Error" on all my group calendars, on both machines.
Preferences>Accounts>Server Path reveles the server path has reverted back to a GUID "/principals/_uids_/GUID string/" .
I change it back to "/principals/_uids_/wiki-GroupName/" and get it working again, but if I quit iCal and restart it again reverts back to the GUID.
I've trashed all calendars in ~/Library/Calendars, and the Prefs. I also tried "/principals/wikis/GroupName/", but again it reverts.
I booted to my 10.6.3 clone and have no problems with the group calendars there.
(I'm running 10.6.4 Server)
Is anyone else having this issue?
Any ideas?

Are you asking for an example of how to use calendarservermanageprincipals? While the tool is designed to help you configure privileges on resources and locations, it works fine for users. So I created a new user in Workgroup Manager to represent my Marketing department's calendars. I named this user "sharedmarketing".
Then, I wanted to give staff read-only access to the calendar and give Marketing write access, so I executed these two commands:
sudo calendarservermanageprincipals --add-write-proxy groups:marketing users:sharedmarketing
sudo calendarservermanageprincipals --add-read-proxy groups:staff users:sharedmarketing
I then imported the content from the Marketing Wiki calendar into this calendar and that was it!
If I logged in directly to the sharedmarketing account (not necessary), and looked how the account was set to be delegated, it properly showed group names:
There is no way to configure it like this using the iCal GUI, and this was I always felt that the management of privileges was the biggest obstacle in setting up iCal Server in this proper, supported fashion.
Then, from the client, I can naturally access those group calendars:
This is SO much easier to setup and maintain as each user only needs to have their ONE iCal account configured and they can just add the necessary groups, which is WAY easier than supplying users with crazy wiki-calendar URLs.

  • Time machine no longer works with iLife

    I try to open Time Machine with iPhoto, and it no longer works. Please fix this soon.

    Sorry, but that option has been removed, for some reason:

  • Time Machine doesn't work with Windows Server 2008

    At work we use a Windows Server running with Windows Server 2008 to backup our work via Time Machine. All my collegues are running Snow Leopard appart from on that runs under Leopard because it's a G5.
    A few weeks ago I installed Lion to try it before upgrading all the computer and found that time machine won't work. Apperantly I found that it is due to an AFP connection.
    Can anyone tell me if I can do anything apart from trying to use another Backup Software like Data Backup?
    Would really like to use Time Machine as it's SUPERB ;-)

    Perhaps that drive is too small to use for Time Machine. Your Time Machine drive needs to be at least twice the size of the drive it is backing up, preferably 3 times.

  • Time Machine no longer working with External Hard drive

    I have an iMac 24 and an Iomega 500Gb drive. TimeMachine was working fine when I first set it up over Firewire. I then bought a MacBook and tried to use a the same drive to run separate Time Machine backups. I aborted it when I ran out of time as I was going away.
    The iMac and the MacBook no longer recognise the Iomega drive as valid. I get an error about the drive being read only.
    How can I resolve or reset this to get the iMac backups working? I'll probably buy a portable drive for the MacBook backups.

    Unfortunately, your going to have to reformat the drive. There is no fix for the "Read Only" issue at this time.
    *_How Should a Time Machine Hard Disk be Prepared?_*
    For Time Machine to work properly, the hard disk must be formatted “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)” and its’ Partition Scheme should be either GUID or Apple Partition Map.
    Time Machine is incompatible with disks partitioned as Master Boot Record (MBR). Unfortunately, this describes nearly every hard drive you can buy because MBR is a Windows partition scheme. (Naturally, this DOES NOT apply to Apples’ Time Capsule.)
    For some, Time Machine begins to perform as expected with a new external hard disk. But then the initial full backup or subsequent incremental backups fail. The user only later discovers the hard disk was still partitioned as Master Boot Record (MBR).
    One article on Time Machine made this observation: “Virtually everybody will have to open Disk Utility and repartition the disk as APM or GUID. It doesn't really matter which one because the Time Machine disk will not be bootable anyway. APM allows a disk to boot a PowerPC, GUID allows the disk to boot an Intel processor but both are easily digestible by Time Machine on either kind of processor.” []
    It’s been recommended by many here that your reserve at least double the size of your primary hard disk, that way Time Machine backups have room to grow as the size of your data grows. Additionally, the more space you give Time Machine the more history it can preserve. The less space you reserve for Time Machine the sooner older backups & deleted items will disappear.
    Connect the hard disk you wish to use for Time Machine backups.
    Launch Disk Utility.
    It will appear twice in the pane on the left. (Make sure you recognize that it is different from the 2 icons that represent your Macs' internal drive.) The upper entry represent the device as a whole, including the controller inside. The lower entry represents the hard disk contained within the device.
    Click on the upper icon of the external hard disk.
    Select the "Partition" tab.
    For "Volume Scheme" choose "1 partition". (Chose 2 partitions if you intend on storing other data on the disk besides your Time Machine backups.)
    Name the disk.
    Format should be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)".
    Click "Options".
    Select either GUID or Apple Partition Map. (See above for significance)
    Click "OK".
    Click "Apply".
    Now chose the level of secure erase you desire. (More passes means more time)
    Once the external hard disk is repartitioned, select it again in Time Machine preferences and use it for your backups.
    Let us know if this was helpful.

  • Time Machine no longer working with 10.5.5

    Hello all,
    I have a 500GB Time Capsule and my MacBook had previously backed up quite happily to it. Since installing 10.5.5, however, it just won't work. The disk image mounts, but Time Machine just hangs on "preparing for backup". I checked with Console, and this is what I found:

    What are "Event store UUIDs", and why would they not match up? I let it run for a few hours last night, but it didn't complete its task. I am going to let it run all day today to see if it manages to reconcile the problems and back things up, but does anyone have an idea what this is about?

    Adding a data point to what Glenn pointed out.
    Last night it took 20 minutes to do the deep traversal then 12 minute to backup the updates. That's on relatively modest 55GB worth of data being backed up.
    This is perfectly normal and the backup should NOT be interrupted.
    If people are curious what is happening when TM backs up, then I suggest adding a wonderful little widget called "Time Machine Buddy" which will give you all the information you need as to what is going on during a TM backup (or failure).
    You can find TM Buddy under Status in the Other Widgets directory on you Mac.

  • Which mail client do I use with iCal server?

    I will soon have os x server, and I want to use iCal server with mail. I want to schedule meetings, etc., like Exchange. However, many people have Outlook. Some have Entourage. Will these clients with with iCal for scheduling meetings and if not which client can I use? Thank you.

    Which Platform are the clients?
    Apple Mail does not work directly with iCal server. The Leopard version of iCal is what is used for scheduling. Mail is not like Outlook on PC or Entourage on the Mac where email, calendering and contacts are in one application. Leopard uses Mail, iCal, Address Book to provide similar functions.

  • 3party calendar apps and invitations with iCal Server - Mac/PC enviro

    We are a mixed OS company with macs and PCs. The macs are currently using iCal client software which is working great. However, our PC users are using Thunderbird-Lightning extension. In iCal or the web GUI, users get an invitation notification to accept or deny. Currently, with our thunderbird-lightning clients when they receive the meetings, it is automatically populated in their calendars without the option to accept or deny. Is there a way to fix this? Also when thunderbird-lightning clients try to email members to a meeting it will try to send to the UID and not the users email address, even it is defined in osx workgroup mng. Lastly we would like to add email notifications for all meetings, if possible.
    What other windows calendar clients seem to work best with iCal Server? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
    10.6.1 SL server, ical server.
    10.5 and 10.6 mac users

  • Hyper-V could not replicate changes for virtual machine 'machinename': The connection with the server was terminated abnormally (0x00002EFE).

    I have a 3 node cluster that has replica setup to replicate to another cluster off-site.
    Suddenly one of the servers is not replicating with the error:
    Hyper-V could not replicate changes for virtual machine 'machinename': The connection with the server was terminated abnormally (0x00002EFE). (Virtual Machine ID CC0FD4CC-F9B7-4C68-ABE8-B7D52A87899F)
    All other servers are replicating fine so there cannot be a permissions or connectivity issue between the 2 clusters.
    This server has 2TB of data so I'd rather not have to start the replication again.
    Does anyone have any pointers?

    Hi drensta,
    Based on my knowledge , "hyper-v replica broker " is needed for failover cluster replica .
    Here is a link for "Why is the "Hyper-V Replica Broker" required?"

  • Events created on my iPhone 5 calendar are no longer syncing with iCal.

    Events created on my iPhone 5 calendar are no longer syncing with iCal on my Macbook Pro (Lion OSX). It works fine the other way around.
    I can't understand why, and cannot find a solution. Please help!

    You can no longer sync via iTunes. That method of sync was removed (and the 1000+ post thread is arguments over things tangientally related to that).
    You need to sync via other means than iTunes, then.
    One option is to use iCloud. If you sign into iCloud on all your devices, and then make sure your calendars are in the "iCloud" section on your devices, they should sync.
    If you don't want to use iCloud, you could use Google calendars, they operate much the same way (but may be less reliable).
    Or if you use Exchange for work, you could sync that way.
    Or if none of those are acceptable, you could install OS X Server and set up the calendar server on your local network and use it to sync. This is fairly straightforward "for setting up a UNIX calendar server" but it's not trivial and beyond the scope of a forum post to explain it all

  • IPhone 3GS calendar is no longer syncing with iCal

    iPhone 3GS calendar is no longer syncing with iCal since upgrade to Lion. No issues prior to upgrade. Ideas?

    I am having the same problem.  I have snow leopard and since I upgraded to itune 5.0, I have had nothing but problems.  In icloud, all of my events quadrupled which then caused all my ical events to do the same on my computer and phone. What a nightmare!  The apple support guy had never seen anything like it!  I have since cleaned up my calendar on both my phone and macbook, but now any event I add to my phone does not show up during sync.  I noticed that when I go into mail, contacts, calendars and then go into my gmail account, the calendar button is set to off. If i try to switch it on, I get a message asking what I would like to do with the local calendars on my phone.  I am afraid to do anything so I just cancel!  Any thoughts?  The calendar on my computer is current so I could always over write my phone during a sync--but still unsure.  Thanks

  • Firefox just sent a notice that it no longer works with Mac OS X 10.5. Is that why my gmail calendar keeps non- or dysfuntioning?

    I have been experiencing constant dysfunction in my Gmail calendar on my Mac Mini, but not on any other computer. It happens whether I am using Safari or Firefox.   This morning Firefox sent a notice that is no longer works with Mac OS X 10.  Suggestions?

    Your best bet is to get a computer capable of running the latest version of Mac OS X - Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8). This is the most secure option and will allow you to run the latest and greatest Firefox.
    That is a pretty crazy suggestion just to update a browser! There is another alternative if you are worried about having an unsupported browser.
    You can run TenFourFox whose purpose is to support older Macs.

  • Time Machine will NOT work with Airport Disks!

    It looks like Time Machine will not work with Airport Disks after all. All references to Airport have been removed from the Time Machine page:
    It also specifically says: "You can designate just about any HFS+ formatted FireWire or USB drive connected to a Mac as a Time Machine backup drive. Time Machine can also back up to another Mac running Leopard with Personal File Sharing, Leopard Server, or Xsan storage devices."
    Surely, they would have included the Airport Extreme Base Station in this list if it was supported.
    I really hope there will be another firmware update for the AEBS which will bring compatibility with Time Machine, because Time Machine was the only reason for me to buy an AEBS. (I only use it as a small backup server, I don't even have wireless networking enabled. There were other solutions, e.g. from Synology, which are faster and more reliable than AEBS disk sharing, but Synology stated their network drives would not be compatible with Time Machine.)

    Here's how you can potentially use your AirDisk with TimeMachine (beware that YMMV), but it should work as it works with every other "unsupported" device.
    1) Mount your AirDisk so it appears on your Mac
    2) Open
    3) change directories to the AirDisk's root folder located in "/Volumes"
    ie: cd "/Volumes/AirDisk Name"
    4) execute this command to "bless" the drive to be used with time machine:
    5) Start TimeMachine and if all went well, it should recognize your AirDisk drive and use it for TM.
    This should also work on NFS shares, SMB shares, AFP shares, basically anything. It has worked up until the last developer seed, so unless they yanked this at the last minute, it should still work.
    Now, the reason why Apple removed this feature may be due to the unreliability of the AirDisk, so be cautious.

  • HT201250 My 10.7.3 Time Machine won't work with external disks. Worked fine with Snow Leopard, and even Lion 10.7.1

    My 10.7.3 Time Machine won't work with external disks. Worked fine with Snow Leopard, and even Lion 10.7.1
    I have tried everything, even buy new external disk from different manufacture.
    If I cant get a fix soon, I am downgrading back to SnowL.

    Still no luck. I tried all the tricks, reconfiguring TM (remove selected disk option, and re-setting it, and trying different disks). Tried new combo updater, and the newer TM update after that. Tired two different disks too (one is my older firewire WD MyBook 1TB, and my brand new 3tb Seagate GoFlex USB... either one plugged into back of computer - no intermediary devices). I did get the TM buddy wiget and it produced the following log, from the last attempt, where I setup lots of exclusions so that backup quantity was small (under 10gb). Still it failed to complete. Here is that log, for what it is worth:
    Starting standard backup
    Backing up to: /Volumes/TM-Disk/Backups.backupdb
    9.56 GB required (including padding), 911.15 GB available
    Waiting for index to be ready (101)
    Copied 0 files (0 bytes) from volume Mac HD.
    Backup canceled.
    To prove a point, I will take these disks are run them on my other Tiger and Snow Leopard laptops to prove TM works fine on those with these disks. But I fear the only options are to either have my tech re-install LION... or just have him reinstall SL instead. Im at wits end.
