Anyone out there using the iSync connector?
Address Book syncing seems to be working great. Calendar syncing doesn't seem to be working at all?

Works fine for us. Do you have a specific example?

I setup the connector and pushed the sync now button. I have three calendars to sync (2 in iCal and one in Zimbra). All three show up in the Sync setting dialog. When I click the sync now button, everything seems to go just fine. It says it is syncing calendars, but when I view either calender, nothing has synced. Let me make sure I understand how it should work. All appointments in my 2 iCal calendars should show up in Zimbra as new calendars. My one Zimbra calendar should show up in iCal as a new calendar. Is this how it is supposed to work?

So I created a new Calendar in Zimbra and that now syncs as expected to iCal. For some reason though, the Calendar calendar will not sync.
However, no iCal calendars seem to sync back to Zimbra. I tried creating a new iCal calendar, but that didn't work.

Do you have events that are current in those calendars? We currently sync 150days forward and 1yr back.

It seems to not like anything pre-existing. You must create new calendars (on either end) and new appointments (not just move an appointment from one calendar to another).
You should update your docs to reflect this.

Yes - there are current events in all of the calendars.
It just seems really unpredictable (I know it's Beta). Sometimes iCal calendars show up in Zimbra, sometimes they don't (for no apparent reason). I can't get the Zimbra Calendar calendar to show up at all in iCal.

which version of the iSync beta are you using? The latest is 0.9.6, and might have some bug fixes for issues you've run into.

So more wierdness to report. Suddenly, iCal showed multiple (I think 8) instances of the Zimbra Calendar calendar. So I went from not being able to see that calendar in iCal, to seeing eight different versions of it. Not wanting 8 versions of it, I deleted all of them and now that calendar doesn't show up in iCal again.
Are there any log files anywhere to help troubleshoot this?
