Caldav and Carddav for MAC doesn't connect

we have a single MAC with an actual MAC-OSx that wants to connect to our Groupwise-System.
E-Mail works fine.
But connecting to caldav or carddav as described in

doesn't work.

The message I get in every variation of username or email-address, groupwise server address and with or without ssl, Gw-server or gms-server, with path or no path I've tried, is only one error message:

"Accountname/Passwort konte nicht überprüft werden"
(In englisch something like "account name / password couldn't be validated")

Is there any idea how to solve this problem?

Hi Holger,

Have you installed and configured the GroupWise Calendar server?

Hallo, Holger

calendar publishing host and calendar server are not the same.
You _need_ calendar server on a dedicated sles system

Look here for GW 2014 R2

and for GW 2018
