[CalendarServer-users] Remote Principal Administration

Hello Again,
Well it's not pretty, since I've never used Python before, but I've  
got CalendarServer talking to my application's PostgreSQL backend and  
so far so good.  I still have to do open heart surgery on my  
application to reflect the new decoupled accounts table, but it will  
be worth it.  Thanks again for your direction.

So, since I don't know anything about directory services, can you  
please tell me what the realmName parameter is for and what should I  
be setting it to for a SQL backend?  Also, could you please explain  
what the baseGUID is for?  I'm getting the following:  Directory  
service <SQLDirectoryService '': 'hostname'> has no GUID; generating  
service GUID from realm name

Sorry for the trouble,
