Logging-Debug for Addressbook
First shutdown Addressbook app.
Launch terminal app.
defaults write com.apple.addressbook ABShowDebugMenu -bool YES
Turn it off by just reversing it:
defaults write com.apple.addressbook ABShowDebugMenu -bool NO
Logging-Debug for CalDAV+iCAL
If you are using CalDAV account with ZCS, please help us investigating this problem. On your Mac please do the following and gather some data.
First shutdown iCal app.
Launch terminal app.
You can turn on the debug options in iCal by:
defaults write com.apple.iCal IncludeDebugMenu 1
Turn them off by just reversing it:
defaults write com.apple.iCal IncludeDebugMenu 0
Furthermore, you can log all of the HTTP transaction to the console via:
defaults write com.apple.iCal LogHTTPActivity yes
Turn them off by just reversing it:
defaults write com.apple.iCal LogHTTPActivity no
Logging will show up in /var/log/system.log
Launch iCal app.
Select the shared folder, right click, refresh.
Not seeing Calendar's
'''DO NOT USE SPACES IN THE CALENDAR NAME'''
This is resolved for the 5.0.7 release. (Need bug # for this)
You might be seeing this:
Comment #30 give some instructions on a case they can reproduce.
zmprov gd <your domain name> zimbraPublicServiceHostname zmprov gs <your server name> zimbraServiceHostname
If zimbraPublicServiceHostname is not set, or set to a different name (such as an alias of the machine or a load balancer), you are hitting this issue.
iCal & Entourage Use for Calendars - Leopard/10.5 users
Update The 5.0.6+ Connectors will no longer work with Entourage. Your only option for Calendars will be using CalDAV with iCal.App. You still will see an option about Entourage in the Connector but it will be grayed out.
Because of some core issues with Apple's SyncServices, we recommend that Entourage and iCal users use iCALv3 (Mac 10.5) configured for CALDAV. Please use the Zimbra Connector instructions to setup iCal for CALDAV.
For Entourage, this recommendation stems from the fact that Microsoft decided to use WebDAV rather than CALDAV. If MS decides later to include CALDAV support for Entourage, we'll have another option.
Please see bug for details:
RFE to support WebDAV for Entourage:
Can't see Calendar's after configuring Z-iSync for CALDAV - 10.5 users
You didn't follow the directions most likely. Goto iCal Preferences Accounts.
There should be NO configured accounts prior to configuring Z-iSync for CALDAV.
Remove the current Account listed in iCal and redo configuration for CALDAV with Z-iSync.
Calendar events are displaying the wrong time
Apple expects the year of 1971 for the DTSTART variable within an ICS file. There is no standard that dictates this.
Zimbra (prior to version 5.0.5) was using 1601, this is in /opt/zimbra/conf/timezones.ics .
Please see bug for more details (resolved 5.0.5):
Alarm & Calendar Notification Issues with iCal
These issues are getting worked out for the 5.0.7 release.
Some more details:
Trick to work around address lookup for the Attendee field in iCal Events
Configure the Addressbook using one of the other recommendations on this page.
You can now drag entries from your Addressbook into the Attendee field of iCal.
Attendee Lookups for iCALv3/MacOS10.5
iCal3 [webdav] needs to use the Apple Directory Access utility for attendees (It's on 10.5). It will only work against Apple OD/CAL servers.
RFE filed to include necessary LDAP attributes to provide ical oattendee lookups
See bug [scheduled for 5.0.7]:
Free/Busy Lookup not working as expected
The Free/Busy lookup requires auto-attendee lookup to be working.
This requires bug 26619 to be resolved for iCalv3/Mac 10.5.
Attendee Lookup for iCal/Mac 10.4
iCal.app on Mac 10.4 only uses local entries in Apples Addressbook for address/username lookup for new appointments.
Addressbook+LDAP configuration requires a copy of an "all/*" search in ldap into the local addressbook. Sync doesn't seem to work.
Please see this bug comment and the 10.4 section for more details:
iCal calendar color changing modifies calendar name and/or doesn't retain color
Fixed in 5.0.5 . See bugs for details:
New Calendars don't sync unless you select "all". Mac 10.4/Z-isync
Please see bug for details:
Directory Access configuration on Macs
File that configures [system wide] for Address Book resolution
Mac clients cause spamming of invitation events when they adjust calendar events
This, at it's root, is caused by other bugs listed here. Usually this will get resolved with the proper upgrades that the bugs require (ZCS 5.0.5+)
There is a RFE/Bug though that will also resolve this, by allowing the "action" of an appointment to be set.
Please see bug for details [scheduled for 5.0.7]:
Calendar Invites can't be imported into iCal
If you look at the ics file, you might see an extra return character at the end.
You'll see this if an Outlook client send an invite to a user using a Mac with a thick client [Mail.app/Entourage].
This was resolved in the 5.0.5 release. Please see bug for more details:
iTunes & iPhone configuration for CALDAV
Please see main wiki page on iPhone http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=IPhone
If you follow the instructions about configuring the Zimbra iSync Connector for CALDAV use, there should be no issues about sync'ing with your iPhone.
At this time, new events created on a iPhone/CALDAV setup will write the event to a local calendar in iCal.app . There's no way around this yet. It's a limitation at this time with Apple's software. You can change the events calendar assignment though later via iCal.app.
Please see Screenshot of iTunes & iPhone
Clearing iCal cache
Make and run script:
#!/bin/sh rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/SyncServices/Local/clientdata/com.apple.iCal rm -rf ~/Library/Calendars rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/IcalExternalSync.plist rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.iCal.helper.* rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.iCal rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/iCal
Clearing ALL of iCal
Careful, This Will Remove All Calendar Data. Have all iSync related programs shutdown [addressbook, ical, iMail]
You will also need to redo your CalDAV account setup for the Zimbra iSync Connector. It might also be necessary to uninstall and reinstall the Zimbra Connector. Make and run script:
#!/bin/sh rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/SyncServices/Local rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/SyncLocalCopy rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/iSync/SyncLocalCopy rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/iCal rm -rf ~/Library/Calendars rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.* rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/IcalExternalSync.plist rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.iCal.helper.* rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.iCal rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/iCal
Use LDAP directory from ZCS for Mac Addressbook / Mail.App / iCal for Mac 10.4
This is generally for those that aren't using Z-iSync.
First, test on shell that you have ldap connectivity.
ldapsearch -x -H ldap://ZCSserver-name:389 "uid=ajcody"
That returned successfully.
Then Addressbook Preferences
LDAP + (for new) Name: anything really Server: ip/hostname that was used successfully in the ldapsearch string Search Base: [leave blank] Port: 389 Scope: Subtree No auth needed * Save
I have no idea what the "Auto Update LDAP Cards" does.
Then setup Mail.App for IMAP to the Zimbra server. Check preferences to use LDAP - it will use the Address Book configuration that you did prior and it should auto-resolve to a username when you do a new message.
iCal will only use address that are in the LOCAL addressbook when you use the attendee field for a new event.
One way around this is to do a wildcard search in the Addressbook and drag those items to the local addressbook.
Goto to Address Book, selected Directories my ldap server and put in the below for the search field:
This search result can then be dragged to the "All" folder in the Group column. It creates a "Last Import" item in the Group column now - it might warn about updating entries that all ready match.
