Error messages

Google Calendar users get "Calendar cannot be shown"

This issue can occur for the following reasons:

The Google Calendar user can’t connect to your HCL Domino server

To resolve the issue, you can:

  1. Check all settings and confirm there are no restrictions preventing requests from getting through to the HCL Domino server from the browser.
  2. Turn on detailed event logging and check the log database for incoming web service requests. Learn more

The Notes user is provisioned in Google Workspace

To resolve the issue, you can:

  • Add the user to an organizational unit where the Calendar service is turned off.
  • Suspend the user in Google Workspace.

On the user’s Person document, the Calendar field is not set to Notes

To resolve the issue, check the Calendar field in the Person document and try again.

Update Calendars in 'dbname.nsf' errors

You might view the following errors in the server log:

  • AMgr: Agent 'Update Calendars' in 'dbname.nsf' does not have proper execution access, cannot be run
  • AMgr: Agent 'Update Calendars’ in 'dbname.nsf' encountered error: Error validating user's agent execution access

These errors indicate the template wasn’t signed before you installed the product. You need to sign the connector database with a trusted ID (the server ID is recommended). For details, go to Sign the installation templates and check access.

Notes error: Unable to open Name and Address Book

Check the Domino server where the mail file resides. Make sure the server has the connector server listed as a trusted server. For details on your mail server and connector server, go to Create a Server Group document.

Feed terminated: Microsoft HTTP / Network error occurred

It’s not uncommon to have occasional HTTP-connection timeouts. If the problem persists, on the Network tab of your Server Group document, set the Network timeout value to Off. For details, go to Create a Server Group document.

Deployment issues

Notes calendars are not being updated with Google information

This issue can occur even if you have active Google Calendar users listed in the connector database. To resolve the issue, you can:

Turn on detailed event logging and check the log database for more information

To turn on detailed event logging:

  1. In GCCHN, click System Setup.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Turn on the Detailed event logging option.

Check your Domino server log for errors while the Update Calendars agent is running

The agent should run automatically on an hourly basis. If it doesn't run, try running it manually:

  1. In the Domino console, enter: Tell amgr run "gccin\gccin.nsf" 'update calendars'
  2. Verify the agent ran.
  3. Review the Domino console and GCCHN log for errors.

Note: You might need to adjust the command according to your NSF file path.
