Free/Busy information missing on certain users after exchange upgrade.

Hi, I just upgraded to a new server with exchange 2007, I have removed the old server running exchange 2003 from the site. I followed the migration process and all seemed to work fine. My only problem is that I have 4 users that I cannont see the free/busy data on when I try to schedule a meeting. If I mouse over the user it says "no free/busy information could be retrieved" I have verified all calender permissions on each users mailbox. This worked fine on the old system. I have no events logged in the event viewer, it is very clean. The 4 users in question are setup identical to the other users that are working fine. I think I am missing something very simple but I am currently braindead and would appreciate any help you could give.

Free/Busy is handled slightly different in exchange 2007.  you can now look at free/busy from the client

In Outlook, open Tools-->Options-->Calendar Options-->Free/Busy Options  

Make sure that the 4 users that are having issues are set to show free/busy in the options.

You might want to make sure that autodiscover is pointing to the correct Availability Service.  You can see this via the Test E-mail AutoConfiguration tool in Outlook 2007 (press CTRL and right-click the Outlook icon in the System tray).

I am using outlook 2003, The autoodiscovery is working because I didn't have to reconfigure the outlook clients after the upgrade. The clients automatically switched to the new server.

On the mailboxes of these 4 users make sure, they have full mailbox rights..Provide explicit Full Access permissions to their logins and then check..

Please have one of the affected user the switch from their command prompt

outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy

Once run please check the FB information again from your calendar.

Sorry for the late reply, Believe it or not but it seemed to fix itself. It took 4 days but at the end it was all fixed. Not sure if it was a replication issue. That seems like a possibility.
