Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure Proxy Administrator Logins

Proxy logins must be configured for Communications Express. For instructions on how to configure proxy logins for Communications Express, see4.1 Configuring for Communications Express.

To allow administrator proxy logins for Calendar Server outside Communications Express, perform these steps:

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

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

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

  4. Edit the parameter that follows:


    Specifies whether administrators are allowed to perform proxy logins to administer user calendars. If "yes", proxy logins are allowed. If "no" proxy logins are not allowed. The default value is "yes".

  5. Restart Calendar Server for the new value to take effect.

  6. Verify that administrator proxy logins are working by using the following WCAP command:


    The following list contains an explanation of each variable in the previous example:

    • server is the name of the server where Calendar Server is running.

    • port is the Calendar Server port number. The default port is 80.

    • admin-user is the Calendar Server administrator. For example, calmaster.

    • admin-password is the password for admin-user.

    • calendar-user is the calid of the Calendar Server user.

    • fmt-out is the specification for output format of the content. For example, text or HTML.

    If the command is successful, Calendar Server displays the calendar for calendar-user. If problems occur, Calendar Server displays “Unauthorized”.

    Causes for error might be:

    • The admin-user does not have Calendar Server administrator privileges.

    • The admin-password is incorrect.

    • The calendar-user is not a valid Calendar Server user.
