My SOGo version is 2.2.16 (root@shiva.inverse 201502121141). Something has changed in this version, some reason in my calendar names are not recognizable, instead it prints as : 147F-4Dcc ....

But if I create a new calendar i.e test it is normal.

I have attached the screen-shot. anybody has an opinion on this ?


Are the alpha-numeric-named calendars "shared" calendars from other users?

If so, that would seem to indicate the issue has to do with the authentication of users -- a scrambling of usernames -- i.e., LDAP, SQL, Samba-AD, Microsoft-AD, etc. How are you authenticating users?

Where is user data stored? It may also simply require a "fresh" sharing from the original user.

It might also be helpful to know your OS, etc.


1. users are from ldap
2. calendars, events are stored in postgresql
3. this is my own account.
4. I do not think this is something to do with authentication because
a) this particular calendar is not shared
b) if i create new calendar - for example TEST it does create exactly what I write
5. only those two calendar I created long ago had these 147F-4Dcc .... kind of names.
6. I had already took a look into the logs, when I click on these i see no error, warning message
7. This might be somewhere in the database or the sogo could not translate those to readable format - which I don't know where to fix


Your conclusions sound logical! Now maybe someone can help you fix it.

(1) since it seems not to involve users, looking in LDAP is probably not the solution

(2) it sounds like a formatting error (UTF-8 etc.) in the database

If I read your e-mail correctly, this started when you recently upgraded SOGo? I'm a little confused about your version number 2.2.16, as I don't remember that version. Can you not upgrade to the latest version, 2.3.1?

nope, But i renamed those calendar and it seem to be work
Perhaps someone can help (I'm not an expert) It sounds like your database needs a bit of a cleanup.

Do you have access to the database from a gui interface or command line? Can you query these calendars? Are these the only calendars effected? Is it possible to rename the calendars (i.e., correct them)?
