I have an Exchange server. All of my clients are Outlook 2003. Whenever a user (all users that I've seen so far) clicks on Tools>Options>Calendar Options...>Resource Scheduling... they receive the following error:

The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.

The server is up. All the clients show "Connected" in the bottom right. Mail is routing and being delivered. They can open their calendars, schedule entries, etc. However, I have several resources that are no longer accepting appointments. This seems to be related.

Any ideas?

Hmmm. That may be a step in the right direction. I went under System Manager and right clicked Public Folders > View System Folders. I see 12 or so folders named various things (OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK, schema-root, StoreEvents{6DF...} etc. ) When I go to properties> replication tab on some these folders, I see some of them are trying to replicate to a server that is no longer active. Maybe this has something to do with it?

Should I point this replication to the active server and remove the old one?

It seems removing the old server from the replication tab on those Public folders worked.
