I am setting up a Resource Mailbox in Exchange to automatically schedule our meeting rooms using the following article as a guide: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF019.html

When configuring the mailbox to process Scheduling Invitations in Outlook, I receive an error message when I click the 'Resource Scheduling' button under 'Tools > Options > Calander Options':

"This folder cannot be opened because there is a configuration problem on the server. Contact your Microsoft Exchange administrator for assistance".

We have the following setup:
Email Client: Outlook 2003
Exchange: Exchange 2003 (SP1)
Server: Windows 2000 Server (SP4)

Hi,

Direct Booking depends on the free/busy data of the mailbox. Can you check whether you have a replica for publishing free/busy info on that admin group.

Thanks,
Vasanth.

We are having this same issue.  We recently brought down our 2003 server and replaced it with 2007.  What is the final resolution to this?
