Error booking meeting from Outlook with Exchange 2007

One off my users get an error message when trying to send a meeting request that includes any of my meeting rooms.
Error: Direct Booking
Test: Cannot directly book a resource for this meeting

It fails only for one user. Works fine for all other. I looked for any settings regarding security and permission on the meeting room, but there is nothing that should lead to this message.

We have tried the enable/disable "Exchanged Cached Mode"-fix without any success.

Depending on how you have your resources setup.

Is this user trying to book directly in this resources calendar, or are they creating a booking in their own calendar and inviting the resource?

Ideally they would be creating this booking in their own calendar and inviting the resource.
