CalCheck Results RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey folks...

    I wanted to understand the results of the CalCheck utility and troubleshoot the issue: A user in my organization complains that outlook calendar takes time to load and had the hour glass when she selects the calendar. She is a delegate of her managers calendar and has Editor permissions on the calendar and on the entire mailbox (including the deleted items folder). Permissions wise, I have checked and verified and no issues..

    Exchange 2010 14.2 Build 247.5
    Outlook 2010 SP1 (x32)

    When I ran CalCheck this afternoon, the results were confusing and did not make sense to me.

    10/09/2012 02:08:40PM ERROR: Recurrence Exception Start Time occurs before the start of the series.
    10/09/2012 02:08:40PM        This could cause a hang or crash in Outlook.
    10/09/2012 02:08:40PM ERROR: Recurrence Exception End Time occurs before the start of the series.
    10/09/2012 02:08:40PM        This could cause a hang or crash in Outlook.

                            Occurrence Count: 62
                            Number of Exceptions: 0x0001

    1. What does "Recurrence Exception Start Time/End Time occurs before the start of the series" mean? The actual start time of the meeting and series start time is the same (with the time difference) where is this time difference coming from? from where is calcheck tool getting this "start time (with the time difference)" information from?. Note: I have plenty of meeting entries with the same issue on it... every item listed as an error has the time difference on it (-4 from the series start time).

    2. Another issue is - there is another line which does not make sense. "This item occurred in the past and ended: 12/06/2013 10:00:00AM". What does this mean?

    Second Error:

    10/09/2012 02:03:17PM ERROR: PidLidGlobalObjectId and PidLidCleanGlobalObjectId values match on two items.
    10/09/2012 02:03:17PM Properties to help investigate this reported item:

                            End Time:  03/05/2010 05:00:00PM

    1. What should I be looking for with this error? I googled on this but didnt find anything helpful

    2. Both the meeting entries that is being compared above is the "SAME". I made sure to open the calendar and double check

    Any help would be appreciated....

  • Hi ,

    It seems to the time of meeting or appointment you set.

    Does your meaning is outlook can't download the shared calendar of others ?

    Please test on OWA and verify if you can add the calendar of others.

    If the OWA is normal, please recreate Outlook Profile or repair it and test again.

     Please also check the permission again for shared calendar.

    Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity john@contoso.com:\calendar

  • Hi Wendy

    Thanks for the comments. Please see responses in-line

    It seems to the time of meeting or appointment you set. - Could you please explain bit more about this?

    Does your meaning is outlook can't download the shared calendar of others ? - We have a GPO to restrict download shared folders - but not sure if this is a problem related to the issue

    Please test on OWA and verify if you can add the calendar of others.  - Yes, verified and OK

    If the OWA is normal, please recreate Outlook Profile or repair it and test again. - Yes, verified and the same results in Calcheck log

     Please also check the permission again for shared calendar.

    Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity john@contoso.com:\calendar -  verified and I have owner permissions on the calendar and full mailbox permissions on the mailbox

    Thanks.
