ZCS 6.07 and Apple Addressbook Carddav

Postby lcx » Sun Dec 19, 2010 10:30 am

I found a simple solution for this issue.

I had the same problem and started wireshark and noticed AB tried to find

an IP for lcx.at@zcs.lcx.at when using a user like zcs@lcx.at on a server called zcs.lcx.at

so the solution for me was to add a static dns to my route with the name "lcx.at@zcs.lcx.at" and my AB was happy, everything works as expected.

you could probably just add a entry to /etc/hosts/ which should have the same effect.

What's the latest on this issue? Anything new? I'm currently trying to make it work, but to no avail yet
It's a non default domain over HTTPS

CardDAV sync with iPhone works perfectly, but not with Address Book

I have tested this quite exhaustively too, but could not get it to work on OS X 10.6 Address Book either :(
As has been posted earlier in this thread it is a bug in Apple's Address Book application. One of my customers reported that it has been fixed in Mac OS X 10.7 Address Book. He tested it in a beta/developer release of OS X 10.7 and was able to successfully add and sync a CARDdav account (in a non-default Zimbra domain).

In my testing, I've found the addressbook's auto detection to be crap.
I ended up getting to work by creating the entry by using the mailstore my account is on. After it was setup, I had to go into the Configuration.plist file and manually change it to the public hostname.
The file is usually in /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/Sources/DATASOURCE_ID
If you have more than one data source in your addressbook, you'll have to figure out which DATASOURCE_ID directory to go into from there.

Our setup: OSX 10.6.7 / ZCS Network 7.1.0 with Proxy Server end point / multi-server setup
We used wireshark to capture the DNS traffic and came to the same conclusion. Here's a little more detail around the explanation in case it helps others:
Assuming your proxy server end point is: zimbrahost.zimbradomain.com & your username is joe.blogs@domain.com you'd enter the following into AB.app to configure it:
u: joe.blogs@domain.com

p: [password]

server: zimbrahost.zimbradomain.com:443 (assuming you're using SSL - the port detail is important)
AB.app will do a DNS query for: domain.com@zimbrahost.zimbradomain.com
We solved the issue by adding a host entry on the mac in /etc/hosts:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx domain.com@zimbrahost.zimbradomain.com
where xxx.etc is the IP address of your proxy server end point (I assume this would also work if you were pointing directly at the mbox server).
