I need to be able to give an executive read permissions to all the calendars in a certain OU (about 200 users). Is there an easy way to do this? I am running Exchange 2007. I do not want to give him access to all the companies mailboxes in the organization.

I have used this tool to set calendar permissions, mostly for public folders. I also know that I am able to use PDVAdmin to set read permissions over everyones calendar. The issue is that I need to give one person read permissions over 250 calendars. These folks live in one OU and 3 different stores. I do not want to give this user permissions over the other 400 user calendars.

In 2007 this has to be done programmatically using the API. This guy wrote this script to do it to all mailboxes in the organization and I'm sure it can be modified to do it for just the users in the single OU but it's a bit beyond the scope of my programming skills.

Thanks, this level of scripting is a bit over my head as well. As far as I am aware there isn't an easy way to do this on a small scale other than using the PDVAdmin tool. Is this your intepretation?
