I have recently reinstalled my Mac Mini server. It was acting up after the upgrade from SLS to Lion Server, so I reinstalled with Lion.

I can't figure out how to properly migrate calendar data from the old installation.

I have tried copying /Library/Server/Calendar and Contacts/ from the old installation to the new one, but that makes no difference I can see. Can anyone help me figure out how to do it?

Did you backup your OD data? – tegbains Sep 2 '11 at 6:50
I still have the old installation on an old disk, fully bootable, so I should have backups of almost everything‚Ķ – mikl Sep 2 '11 at 13:31
If you can do an OpenDirectory export/import or migration and then copy your Calendar and Contacts data, it should work. – tegbains Sep 3 '11 at 5:59
