Interesting, this was supposed to be fixed by [1], which is included in 0.32.2. I guess there failed something in the (re)create of the profile.

Comment 2 Milan Crha 2013-09-06 08:28:54 EDT
I've a patch ready, there was a problem with profile naming, which changes for 0.32.x. Please note that you still can be asked for a password, these are not part of a backup, but you should not get the error like in your screenshot from comment #0.
Comment 4 Jiri Koten 2013-09-18 07:29:24 EDT
Mail and Contacts are working but I'm unable to authenticate to Calendar. It keeps asking for password.
Comment 7 Milan Crha 2013-09-18 07:48:39 EDT
Could you give me your current set, by
   $ gconftool-2 --dump /apps/evolution &>evo-gconf.xml
and your
      (this can hold your passwords, but can be empty or missing too)

thus I'll be able to try to reproduce it here, please?

All the parts worked fine for me, when I was testing the patch. I suspect the source definition in GConf is somehow broken, references wrong host name, user name or something like that.
Comment 8 Jiri Koten 2013-09-19 05:59:41 EDT
Actually this looks like a regression, probably caused by the fix. I'm unable to connect to MAPI Calendar even on clean account in evolution 2.32.

I'll retest with evolution-mapi-0.32.2-6.el6 to be sure.
Comment 9 Jiri Koten 2013-09-19 09:25:05 EDT
Confirmed the regression, after update to evolution-mapi-0.32.2-8.el6 cannot authenticate to MAPI Calendar. The password prompt keeps asking for authentication.
Comment 10 Milan Crha 2013-09-19 13:58:57 EDT
Oh, I thought I cover the inconsistency between addressbook and calendar sources, but I obviously did not; I'm sorry for that. I have a fix ready for this.
Comment 12 Milan Crha 2013-09-20 03:41:25 EDT
Updated package evolution-mapi-0.32.2-9.el6 is available now.
