Could some feedback be provided on this? I am attaching the error.log for reference. The errors with timestamp 18:31 popped up as soon as I started calendarserver. The errors with timestamp 18:33 were encountered when I tried to authenticate to calendarserver.

Hi Rahul,

The filesystem store is known to be incomplete.  It exists only to provide a migration path for legacy data to the PostgreSQL database (and to provide a little extra test coverage to allow us to test multiple implementations of a subset of functionality).  The right fix here is probably to remove all configuration options which would allow you to attempt to use it in a running server until someone volunteers to maintain it and keep it up to date :-).

Are you trying to use it as the actual backend for the store or are you having problems with it during an upgrade from old data?  When reporting a bug like this it's always a good idea to attach your plist :-).
