Shared calendar setup in Exchange 2007. Office 2003 / Office 2004 (Mac)

I am currently in the process of implementing Exchange 2007. Having never used Exchange before it is all new to me.

The main process of migrating users into the system from there current .pst and Entourage database files is on going.

However I would like to know the best way to share a meeting room calendar currently used and shared via net folders (Office 2000).
I'm thinking a public folder with everyone having access permissions as it's only a meeting room calendar. How would I go about setting this up?

Also a few people share there calendar, again via net folders. I see that you can share calendars via Office 2003 setting access permssions. But is there a more central way i.e. Exchange Management Console to share these calendars and assign permissions?

And what about sharing calendar info between Entourage 2008 and Office 2003?

The Apple Mac's a so much more difficult to get going and migrated compared to the PC side of things.

A step-by-step type giude would be great.

Thanks,
Rich

Hi There,

This Technet Guide will show you how to setup recourses in EX07

And here is another how to guide for EX07

http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/management-administration/managing-resource-mailboxes-exchange-server-2007-part1.html

In regards to Entourage, I did read this article a little while ago looking for something else:

See if they help you out. and let me know

Thanks Dark1 for the info.

However I think I will go with a traditional calendar shared out in Public folders. I know MS want to move people away from Public folders but having a normal calendar view is what the users are currently used to.
I may change it in the future but I want to keep the transition to Exchange as seamless as possible.

And Entourage is a nightmare. I don't really want to have to use iCal as a go between but feel I may have no choice. :-(

Managed to setup the calendar once both users were migrated into Exchange.

Thanks!
