Exchange 2003 cant view free/busy time after Nov. 1st
Posted on 2007-10-03
Hi Guys and Gals
I have a problem with Exchange 2003/outlook 2003 where all the users can view other users calendars, however, when they try to view free busy information while using outlook to plan a meeting, there is no information available after Nov. 1st of 2007. Stranger still is, there are three of four users (out of 300) that can bee seen with no difficulties by anyone.
We had 2 2003 exchange servers and have migrated/replicated all the public folder info from the old to the new server, and even whent as far as to "move" the replicas to the new/existing server to no avail. I have notice that if I have a user start outlook with the "cleanfreebusy" switch, an error is returned that basically says, "unable to clean your free/busy information on the server"
When we brought the old server down, we waited till there were no longer any replication messages being sent and or received by the old server, however we have not removed the server from the domain or from the exchange Org yet. we simply made the new server the "master" and removed all replication instances from the new server that tell it to look for replicas there...
It has been a week since we brought the serve down, but it has been more along the lines of 3 weeks that we have noticed the problem of not being able to see free/busy info after the 1st of November.
both servers are fully patched as of 1 week ago, both exchange 2003 ent.
Thanks In advance for your help on this!
