Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure Resource Calendars

  1. Log in as an administrator with permission to change the configuration.

  2. Stop Calendar Server services by issuing the stop-cal.

  3. Change to the /etc/opt/SUNWics5/cal/config directory.

  4. Save your old ics.conf file by copying and renaming it.

  5. Edit one or more of the parameters as shown in the following table:


    Determines if a calendar that belongs to a resource (such as a conference room or audio visual equipment) can have more than one event scheduled for the same time slot when the calendar is created:

    • "no" prevents double booking, and is the default.

    • "yes" allows double booking.

    • This parameter is used only when a resource calendar is created.

      After a resource calendar is created, Calendar Server checks the calendar properties (ics50calprops.db) to determine if double booking is allowed.

      If you need to change the calendar properties for a resource calendar to allow or disallow double booking, use csresource with the -k option.


    Specifies the default access control permissions used when a resource calendar is created. The default is:


    When invitations are sent to resources should they be automatically marked as accepted? The default is "yes".


    When a resource is invited to an event, if it has no existing calendar, should it be autoprovisioned?

    The default is "yes".

  6. Save the file as ics.conf.

  7. Restart Calendar Server.
