Free Busy "no information" after 30 days

Last Modified: 2011-10-03
It appears that the Schedule+ Free Busy connector (? I'm not an Exchange expert) is now limited to 30 days regardless of the mailbox settings.  Most of the calendars in the scheduling utility (schedule others) show the current months free and busy fine but beyond 30 days all users are displayed with the “no information” slashes like this \\\\\ .

Reoccurring Meetings do appear even after the 30 days.

One test was to set a user to publish 6 months, I’m set to publish 12 months
Yet neither can be seen by the other after the current month.
it occurs in both Outlook 2003 and 2007 and also in Webmail. We're using Windows and Exchange Server 2003 Standard with the latest SP/updates applied.

First complaint was yesterday.   I see nothing in either the event viewer or in services waving a red flag. Did bounce the server just not appear stupid. Friday my network admin did deploy IAS and redirected the mail to pass through, but I don't see how that could effect the calendaring free and busy.

There’s a utility available to refresh free and busy but it is not support by Microsoft at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294282/
