Syncing Schedule for Calendars on Exchange 2003

Hey everyone-

We are running Exchange 2003 and we have several secretaries who have collaborative calendars, meaning the share this certain calendar, make changes, add appointments, etc.....standard stuff.  The problem that I'm experiencing though, is when the secretaries do long-term scheduling, their updated information doesn't sync automatically.  If they make a change for three months out, it syncs right up, but if they put the same listing in for a year from now, it will not sync unless I force it to at Server level....is there a setting to extend this some where?

Thanks all,

JK

Outlook only publishes a limited amount of free/busy information on the server by default.

Tools, Options, Calendar Options, Free/Busy. You would have to change that value to get it to publish longer term content.

Thanks Simon,

I have 16 separate department secretaries at 5 different locations, so I was hoping that there would be some way that I could push this setting out to them, if not possible via Exchange itself, possibly through Group Policy?  If you were faced w/ a similar situation what would your Course of Action be?  If it's a registry setting or something I could push it out, but I just need to know where that is located....Thanks for your response,

Regards,
JK

I think the setting is in group policy - I haven't got access to a domain at the moment to check.
You will need to get hold of the Outlook group policy extensions. These are part of the Office Resource Kit tools which is a free download from Microsoft.
