Resource Scheduling - When I click this in OUTLOOK 2007 does not respond.

tmandu used Ask the Experts™
I am using Outlook 2007 when I go to Tools,options, Calendar Options, Resource Scheduling  and click on it  I get  "The operation Failed" . I have looked on this website and found only references to Microsoft KnowBase and no reall definite answers. I am basically trying to create Conference rooms  as a user witha mailbox on exchange so there will be autoamatic acceptance after a conflict check. We are connected to an Exchange Server 2003.

This sounds like a Free/Busy issue in your server logging any Free/Busy errors in the event log? Are you able to see other user's free busy data in the calendars?


 No it cant see anyones freebusy, says it is not available. Also ther is an error on the Exchange log  about trying to uypdate freebusy. I noticec on m y calendar that the only thing checked on my FreeBusy options tab is 2 months and , update every 15 minutes.  Is there something I have to do to set FREE/BUSY up on the Exchange server ???
