Scheduling a Resource with Outlook 2003 and Exchange 2003

Posted on 2006-05-30

Hi experts,

I am not sure what happened but we have 15 or so confrence rooms that we obviously use as resources in outlook to schedule meetings etc. Recently, users report they are not able to see an free/busy data or even schedule meetings in the CR's.  I noticed that when you open the resource the free/busy information is straight lines of \ instead of the free/busy information. And when they send the meeting request they get the "you do not have the permissions to perform this task".

I currently have the permissions set at default (Meaning, when you view permissions it's Default with contributor access and able create items ) I have tried everything but it seems this is becoming more and more of a problem.  With the current permissions most of my users can see the free/busy information and some cannot.  I have the free/busy published to 12 months and the CR's set to auto accept meeting request.   Thanks for any help.
