[CalendarServer-users] Problems with XMLDirectoryService

Thanks for the quick reply.

I commented out the guid elements (and deleted and regenerated the  
server data) with no effect.

Using the command line client, I get the following errors with a props  
command in a user directory:

Failed Properties:
     {DAV:}acl: 401
     {DAV:}current-user-privilege-set: 401

It fails in any path under /principals, but doesn't fail in a path  
like /calendars/users/<username> so I may just be misunderstanding in  
what context the acl command is supposed to work.

If I had to guess I'd say it looks more like user authentication fails  
outside the user's own directory, but I don't know why.  In  
troubleshooting this I changed the AdminPrincipals in caldavd.plist  
and now my user account can at least subscribe to the other account  
and the group, but I still can't delegate the resource or directly add  
events for the group, and availability is still not supported on the  
server (according to iCal, anyway).
