Need help on meeting rooms and clean free/busy information

Hi anyone.

I have a user that has the same problems as described in I'm sure it can be solved like that too, but I don't understand how to do this.

- Are these meeting rooms set up as users in AD?
- How do I run /cleanfreebusy on them?
- Do I log on as a 'meeting room user' and start Outlook with /cleanfreebusy?

Greetings, dds_felles.

Yes, to book meetings the resource has to be set up as a user in AD.  To run cleanfreebusy you must either log in as that user or, if you're an Exchange admin, create an Outlook profile that connects to the resource mailbox and set it as the default profile.  Then launch Outlook manually (i.e. from Start->Run, a command prompt, or a shortcut) with the command Outlook /cleanfreebusy.  That will wipe out the free and busy information for that account.
