    Hi,

    I have a mac pro running 10.8. i am also running vmware fusion in which i have a 10.8 virtual machine that i was using to test wikis. i have since enabled the ical server service. at which point the server locked up. (cant ping or move mouse)

    Figured it was my VM so i built a fresh server that does the exact same.

    I can get in in safe mode which runs ok but i cant stop the ical service. mainly because i cant seem to authenticate using the server applet. i assume because the safe mode doesnt load these components.

    Anyway. i dont know whats causing the ical server to hang the machine but i need to stop in starting on boot.

    How can i do this?

    for anyone else who might come across this. you need to do the following

    Boot in safe mode (hold shift at power on)

    edit the file;
    'etc/caldavd/caldavd.plist'

    change the following line

    EnableCalDAV to <false/>

    worked it out after lots of messing. i still dont know whats causing the hang but at least you can turn it off.
