We are converting from Novell Group Wise to Exchange 2007.  I notice today in a test that the free busy is not working on the Outlook 2003 Client but it does work for OWA.  The strange thing if I add all users to a meeting I No information for all the indidual users but all there resources I do have information for.
Thank You

2.Did you  put a meeting in your calendar for the free/busy to engage ?
3.Might check to see if SP3 is installed on all users PCs who use Office 2003:

If is already installed or does not help might try deleting all reoccurring appointments and recreating them by doing the following.

In your Calendar go to View>Current View>Arrange by reoccurring appointments.
Select All. Right click on Highlighted Area and choose forward.
Insert your own email address and send them to yourself.

Once you have received them in your inbox, go back to you calendar view with all your reoccurring appointments.
Select all once again, right click and choose Delete.

If others are included in the appointments, it will ask if you want to delete and notify attendees or Just delete the occurrence. Choose to just delete the occurrence.

Once they are all gone. Close and re-open Outlook.

Open the email that you sent to yourself with all the appointments included as attachments

While viewing your inbox, is your calendar visible on the folder list on the left?
If not just press CTRL+6 on your keyboard and you should see your calendar and contacts appear.

Then Select all the Appointments in your email and drag them over to your Calendar.

All your appointments will be recreated. (Ref:http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_23601627.html)
