What version of Calendar Server are you using? Is the server configuration customized in any way with respect to the proxy (delegation) data storage? This is represented in the ProxyDBService dict in caldavd.plist. It’s either going to be storing this data in an sqlite DB, or in a postgres DB. Sqlite is the default.

Also, check Calendar Server’s error.log, which might be at /var/log/caldavd/error.log.

Do you have any sort of backup automation that might be causing this? I’m not intimately familiar with our usage of the sqlite DB for proxy storage, but it’s sqlite3, it could in theory become damaged in an improper shutdown. Note also that any backups of this file should only be taken when the service is offline, to ensure that the sqlite DB file is consistent and quiesced.
