Evolution is unable to see GroupWise Calendar.
Evolution's configuration is not updating.


Evolution's configuration needs to be removed both on the file system and in cache in order to refresh or update in some instances.
Here are the steps to do this.

First, login as the user that is experiencing the issue.

evolution --force-shutdown
mv -rf ~/.evolution
mv -rf ~/.gconf/apps/evolution
pkill gconfd

Afterwards, it should be possible to move forward with updates or re-configuration without issue in most instances.
If this is not the case, please contact Novell Technical Support for assistance.

Additional Information

The 'mv' command moves the files rather than deletes them, which allows a revert if needed.
