Oracle calendar to Zimbra via ICS does NOT solve all your problems....

In response to our post: Oracle + Zimbra?  we got at least one person writing in saying "But we can just import the ICS files."

Yes, you can use ICS export/import and it SORT OF works.

You will not have your recurrence patterns and every recurring meeting and appointment will come in as a series of single, disconnected instances.

That is for starters.

Then there are the issues of mapping users throughout the OCS namespace so they map to the new IDs in your Zimbra namespace.

Then there's the issues of conference room / resource behavior that OCS allows but Zimbra does not and how you should deal with that.
