Weird things happening with the calendar

GroupWise 12.0.1

UserA has posted appointments in his calendar. Those appointments are
showing up in UserB's calendar....sometimes. UserB saw them, then
they were gone. Then UserB switched to multiuser calendar (UserA and
UserB displayed) and the posted appointments again showed up on both.
Switched back to single calendar and UserA's appointments were still
listed on his (UserB) calendar. I'm stumped. How is this even
possible? Any clue about what is going on? Or how to fix it?

Re: Weird things happening with the calendar

I guess "anything" is possible. Next time the user sees this have them print screen? Then you have proof they have not gone crazy.

Can the User B click on the User A calendar items and see the details?

My thinking is that the multi user calendar access sets the state for this?

Does User B have proxy access into User A's calendar?

I don't need proof, I saw it.

Not sure, but UserB did start deleting things that he didn't think
belonged in his calendar and they were deleted from UserA's calendar
also.

I don't know.

Yep.

Re: Weird things happening with the calendar

If you are using the multi-user calendar, you need to specifically
check or uncheck the user's calendars in the list to display or not
display the informaiton. Otherwise, it is very particular to what you
think you are viewing and what is actually displayed.

Yep.


OK, so this explains how B would have the rights to see ( and potentially delete ) stuff from A's calendar. If this were happening in the absence of proxy rights, then I would think this is a far more serious issue and represents some sort of identity leak or corruption.

Is User B using Caching Mode or C/S Mode? I think the whole thing is tied to accessing the MU calendar, priming some cache or internal state, etc. with the other user's calendar entries.

I realize that. The problem is that appointments are showing up in
both calendars when they don't belong there.

True...because the docs say you must have proxy rights to a user to
include them in the multi-user calendar.

C/S mode. The weird thing is that appointments which should only be
in one users calendar are in both. I just tried it myself with an
Admin account mailbox that does not have any appointments. When I go
into M-U mode, NONE of my appointments show up. I end up seeing two
blank calendars. I'm thinking M-U mode has some serious bugs.

There is a defect open on the "i'm not seeing my own items" issue you describe.
There also seems to be one on the general "wrong stuff" shows up in the MU view.
I do not see the specific issue described, where you see ghosts of the other users items after using the MU view.

I would open a SR just to get all of this on record. I would normally cite a defect number, but to be honest, I'm seeing a number of possibles, none of which is quite what you describe.
