The csstored daemon manages the various Calendar Server databases. Because each service that accesses the store depends on the successful start of this store service, it should remain running on all servers, both front-end and back-end, whenever the Calendar Server system is running.
It is no longer optional to run this daemon, whether you decide to configure automatic backups or not. Previously, you could disable the script from running by setting the ics.conf parameter local.store.enable to "no", but now the local.store.enable parameter must be set to "yes", which is the default.
The Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide will be re-released shortly with this updated information (Chapter 9).
