Was working on Exchange 2007, testing and such.  Decided to convert to Win Server 2008 while Ex2007 was not yet in production.  Removed Exch2007 from Win 2003 server.  Production Exchange 2003 server now cannot retrieve Free + Busy information.  When looking at F/B info while try to add a calendar event, it shows as slashes.  Followed the procedure in  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/184151
but Editor was already set as the default role and only 1 replica is listed and that is another EX2003 server which is just there for testing.

Have no idea how this was lost when EX 2007 was removed.   Can you help.  Please advise.  Thanks

  1. Try to create a new profile for that user.
  2. Try working with command Outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy on the client box.
  3. Try creating a new user and check if its works for it.

I reloaded the new server (win 2008 and ex 2007), went thru configuration and set up replication of the public folders fro ex2007 and miraclously free/busy started working again.  Just "fixed" a couple of days ago.   Forgot about this question.......  thanks for trying to help me.  Appreiciate it.

I will be awarding you some points for your willingness to assist.  thanks.
