How did you transfer the data? I'm guessing that you copied the whole
o/s + server data from the failing hard-drive to the new one?
Note that Calendar Server requires ACLs on its data directory. I
recently cloned a system using `ditto --rsrc --extattr --acl` - note
that these should be the defaults on 10.5 - and it works perfectly,
but I am not running Calendar Server on that machine. However I think
that `cp -R` might neglect some or all of the Mac-specific metadata,
so if you did that I would perhaps have another attempt at recovering
the data dir.
