Adding a Second Calendar on your Workstation

If you'd like to add a second calendar on your workstation, you need to create a dummy user for that calendar. For example, you might want to add a second calendar for appointments for your entire work group.

To create the dummy user and new calendar, use the following steps. These steps assume a basic understanding of UNIX system administration, so you may need to get some assistance. This assumes you are root.

  1. Add a dummy entry in the /etc/passwd file of the workstation where you want to create the second calendar.

    You need to specify a name, a dummy user ID, and so forth.

  2. Bring down the cm and rpc.cmsd processes.

  3. Log in as the new dummy user, and start a new Calendar Manager.

  4. Edit the access list and permissions for your group.

  5. Add the calendar name to the browse list.

  6. Log out, and log back in with your own login.

    You can now browse the new calendar.
