I have set up two room mailboxes for our two meeting rooms at our head office, which seem to be working well.  Is there any way to view their calendar without going into the Scheduling Assistant.  I would like to open them up like the shared calendars we all have here as it easier to browse.  Might be missing something simple here.....

Can you just go to File --> open --> Other users folder --> Name - 'Name of resource mailbox', folder type - calendar?

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.

So you choose the Mailbox, and change the Folder Type to 'Calendar' and it shows you inbox?

I know how to share and opened a shared calendar, but seeting up an Exc 2007 'Room Mailbox' wont allow you to this in the usual way.  I get this error:

Cannot display the folder.  The server mailbox cannot be opened because this address book entry is not a mail user.
