Hi All,

Info:
 - Exchange 2007 with SP1 - Rollup 2 with Public folder configured.
 - Clients running Outlook 2003.

I got a problem with users Free/Busy information not being up to date or not showing in the group scheduler.
Example : On of my users have 8 persons added in her group scheduler. Problem 1:  one is greyed out like ////////// theres no access and free/busy information is missing - even if calander access rights is correct. Problem 2: in this case user also having problems with seeing her own free/busy information when added.

I found out the starting outlook with /cleanfreebusy helped in most cases - but more and more users getting the same problems now and I dont see the command above is the rigth solution over time.

Please help, hints, solutions...

Regards
Anders Jensen

Do the clients have Office 2003 SP3 installed?

Otherwise might try using /cleanschedplus rather than /cleanfreebusy

Should do, see below

cleanschedplus Deletes all Schedule+ data (free/busy, permissions, and .cal file) from the server and enables the free/busy information from the Outlook Calendar to be used and viewed by all Schedule+ 1.0 users.
