    Unhappy 5.0.2GA - Shared Calendars

    So I upgraded to 5.0.2 today so I could take advantage of the improved calendaring, mainly being able to move appointments from one shared calendar to another.. Well after the upgrade I find this is still not possible, I receive the following error:

    msg: invalid request: Cannot create/modify an appointment/task with organizer set to user1@zimbra.zetabroadband.com when using account user2@zimbra.zetabroadband.com
    code: service.INVALID_REQUEST
    method: ModifyAppointmentRequest
    detail: soap:Sender
    trace: com.zimbra.common.s...

    What gives?

    I've deleted and recreated the shares, and still get the same error message.. Can we ever hope to see this feature working correctly?

    Additionally I can drag and drop the appointment to any of the shared calendars to "copy" it.. which is a sufficient work-around.. But it would be nice to just change the owner.

    I upgraded from 4.5.10GA to 5.0.2GA, I have a second instance of 5.0.2GA running that I installed from scratch.. I'm going to see if this has the same issues with moving appointments. Gotta love vmware!

    Default Change owner of shared calendar

    Any forward progress with this?

    We just lost an employee, and there is a shared calendar under his account that I would like to migrate to someone else's account, but can't figure out how to do that.

    Usually when I have to do something like this, I use the command line tools to export a calendar to an ICS. Create the new calendar in the new account. Import the ICS into the calendar and reshare it with the individuals.

    Hi, Matt.

    Any chance you could help a newbie with the syntax?

    Something like this...though my syntax may not be exactly right...

    Code:
    #### as zimbra user
    $ zmprov
    prov> sm(selectMailbox) ACCOUNT
    mbox ACCOUNT> gru(getRestURL) -o /tmp/data_file.ics /Calendar
    mbox ACCOUNT> exit
    prov> sm ACCOUNT2
    #### if calendar is not created in the new account yet
    mbox ACCOUNT2> cf(createFolder) -V appointment /CALENDAR_NAME
    mbox ACCOUNT2> pru(postRestURL) /CALENDAR_NAME /tmp/data_file.ics
    Then you can log into the new account and share the new calendar again...or from CLI

    Code:
    sm USER
    cm(createMountpoint) /CAL_NAME ACCOUNT2(calendar owner) /REMOTE_CAL_PATH
    Users will have to remove their shares to the old calendar, or you can do that for them from the CLI also...

    Code:
    sm USER
    df(deleteFolder) /CAL_TO_REMOVE
    Hope that helps...

    Matt
