All workstations have outlook 03 installed and have publish free busy enabled. Ive tryed the Outlook /cleanfreebusy. I can view the system schedule free/busy folder the are 26 entries from some users the newest being 7/1/06 nothing in them when opened.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

If you create a calendar entry in OWA for one user, can another user view that entry?
Are you using Outlook 2003 in cached mode or live?
Is Outlook configured as an Exchange client, not a POP3/IMAP4 client?

Lets just make sure that you understood what I meant.

Create a new calendar entry in one calendar.
Then log in to another user's mailbox and see if you can see that entry when setting up a second meeting.

Repeat the same test, with the same users if you can.
Create an entry in Outlook and then see if you can see it when setting up a meeting in OWA.

Then setup a new copy of Outlook that is NOT in cached mode, so is connecting live, and create a calendar entry and see if it can be seen from OWA.

Finally, see if you can create the entry with one user NOT in cached mode in Outlook and see it when setting up a meeting with another user through Outlook - again NOT in cached mode.

Ive sent out a meeting request to the comapny and anyone who is responding is being published up and now can be seen. Thanks for your help. Was this just a case of you have to use the calander it initiate the publishing info?

Free / Busy information only publishes when there is something to publish.
So if you have users who have never published anything then you will not see any information.
