This folder cannot be opened because there is a configuration problem on the server

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.

Hi vasanthgnb,

Thanks for the pointer, I used your advice and the following technet article to resolve the issue: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/Guides/E2k3TechRef/df552c03-a2e9-429f-ac2d-2cc8d26fb4ac.mspx?mfr=true

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?
