After a user account has been renamed from John Doo to John Smith he is not able to schedule resource (i.e. Meeting Room). He used to do it properly before had his account renamed. Now he is not even able to see the Calendar which he has permission. This permission is set at Group level (which John is a member) and not into user level. One of you expert can give me a hand to provide him access into those Meeting Room Calendar (He is a Big Boss and will kill me soon)?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

How long ago was this account renamed?
As a rule I do not rename accounts at all, for any reason, because it just causes odd things to happen.

This account was renamed couple weeks ago. When someone get married it's quite normal here, but it is the first time this kind of issue appears. Do you have any idea what can I do?

What I would do is create a new account and move everything to the new account. The old account would be forwarded to the new account.

Account renames can be messy. Marriage is the only time that I change accounts, but usually I only change the display name. I do not change the actual login details etc.

I was investigating, and we didn't change only the display name as it should be, bit we have changed the account name either. We could realise an strange thing, this user can schedule properly via OWA.
