Hi Experts,

My requirement is to create just a calendar user to book resources defined in the Exchange 2007 in SBS 2008. This user should not have network access at any cost.

How do I set up this ???

Thanks a lot !

Thanks Pret0rian: but this is not a resource. I have already defined some resources in my domain. I just a another email user (restricted to network access)who can book resources. This account will be given to the another untrusted party !  

Please advise !

You can use a Public Folder to host the calendar.

Or, you can set the calendar up on your Companyweb SharePoint site and integrate it into your Outlook 2007 clients.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

For the Public Folders:
http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2007/07/sbs-setup-public-folders-shared.html

For SharePoint, create the Calendar list by clicking the Site Actions button near the top right and clicking Create.

Choose the Calendar list, give it a name and description and go from there.

Users need only click on the calendar's name in the Quick Launch, click the Actions button drop down and there will be an Add to Outlook menu item. Once they have added it, they will have full access to make changes (requires Outlook 2007 for two way communication).

Philip, the issue is this particular calendar user will be a complete outsider. I was planning to give him only out look web access (public URL) as he can book internal resources. This user should not access internal network at any cost ! Network loging should be disabled !

Please advise ??

You could create a restricted domain account in ADUC that has no e-mail box. That user may not need to be in any SBS domain groups, but given specific permissions to a SharePoint Site you can create for that specific task.

The URL for the new sub site would be: https://remote.mysbsdomain.com:987/sites/MySharingSite
