    Default Curl ICS File

    My Version of Zimbra: Release 5.0.13_GA_2791.SLES10_64_20090206110511 SLES10_64 NETWORK edition

    I am trying to migrate data from Messaging Architects Groupwise Archiver into Zimbra. I have the Calendar items converted to ical, but when I use curl to inject them into Zimbra I get the following error.

    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"/>
    <title>Error 500 </title>
    </head>
    <body><h2>HTTP ERROR: 500</h2><pre>system failure: ics formatter failure</pre>
    <p>RequestURI=/service/home/drhughes-archive/calendar</p><h3>Caused by:</h3><pre>com.zimbra.common.service.ServiceException: system failure: ics formatter failure
    ExceptionId:btpool0-3175:1239717295454:9b806e0ce4990e30
    Code:service.FAILURE
    Example of my ical file:
    Code:
    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
    PRODID:-//SVSU GWArchive Converter//1.0//EN
    VERSION:2.0
    METHOD:PUBLISH
    BEGIN:VEVENT

    Any thoughts on what my problem could be?

    Thanks

    I ran into a similar issue a while back. (Exporting calendars from SunBird and then importing)

    Since iCal on Mac seems to work with Zimbra, I imported the ics file into iCal and then re-exported it. Once I did this, I was able to push it to Zimbra without error.

    What is the output from this account in your mailbox.log?

    Thanks

    Missing an END:VCALENDAR?

    Not sure if it is just your incompleted copy, but All BEGIN: must be completed with an END:

    It actually does have the END:VCALENDAR on the end. Some how I didn't get the whole thing pasted into my message.

    Here's the interesting part.

    I logged into web interface and exported my calendar as a ICS and then tried to use curl to bring it over and I get the same message as above. Zimbra doesn't even like it's own exports.

    I think it is time to open a case with Zimbra.

    I found this issue to be related to if the imported appointments spanned daylight savings time. I fixed it by adding a TZID in the iCal header:

    Code:
    BEGIN:VTIMEZONE
    TZID:US-Eastern
    BEGIN:STANDARD
    DTSTART:20071104T020000
    TZOFFSETTO:-0500
    TZOFFSETFROM:-0400
    RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=11;BYDAY=1SU
    END:STANDARD
    BEGIN:DAYLIGHT
    DTSTART:20070311T020000
    TZOFFSETTO:-0400
    TZOFFSETFROM:-0500
    RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=3;BYDAY=2SU
    END:DAYLIGHT
    END:VTIMEZONE
    Where "US-Eastern" is the TZID specified in the appointments.
