I am getting "The operation failed" when trying to schedule resources under Options, Calender, Resource scheduling. I have Exchange 2003 SP2 and Outlook 2003 SP2

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi wveyssen,

> when trying to schedule resources under Options, Calender, Resource scheduling
Sorry, but I'm confused.  You mention scheduling resources, but the menu options you mention take you to a tab where you set resource scheduling options.  That's not where the resources are actually scheduled.  Perhaps if you could describe in a bit more detail exactly what you're doing and what it is you want to do, then we'd be able to help.

Cheers!

Hi BlueDevilFan,

We have 4 exchange servers all in the same organization slit 3 servers at head office and 1 server in a remote location. All are Exchange 2003 SP2. In Outlook (2003, SP2), go to Tools, Options, Calendar Options under Preferences Tab, click on resource scheduling, result -  "The operation failed".
This only happens at the remote site and it happens on all pc's. If we move the mailbox to a head office server and connect, then no problem

Thanks
Warren

Hi, Warren.

Since moving the mailbox to a head office server makes the problem go away, I have to believe that the problem is in Exchange and not Outlook.  Moving the mailbox doesn't change anything in Outlook other than the name of the mail server.  It's not altering any settings, changing client options, etc.  There must be some setting, permission, something that's different on the remote Exchange server.  As a test, if you move the mailbox of someone at the head office to the remote server, do they then suddenly have the problem?  If so, then I'd say that confirms that this is an Exchange issue.

Hi Marcusk1,

The problem resolved itself. We did not change any settings on either the server or the client. Sorry I can't be of any more help than that.
