No Permissions tab on some shared calendars
Posted on 2011-02-09
As in the referenced question, I have several shared calendars that are for resources such as meeting rooms. Some of them give me the Permissions tab when I right click on the title and go to Properties (in Outlook), and some don't. I'm the Sys Admin and, or course, I'm a member of the Domain Admins group.
In the previous question from last November, I didn't have SP1 installed and so it was keeping me from using the suggested PowerShell command. I have SP1 installed now, but I'm running into other problems with the command.
Here's the command I was advised to use:
Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\public folder name" -AccessRights Owner -User username
When I enter the command, I get an error stating that no existing 'PublicFolderEntry' matches the Identity I gave it. I've tried using the entire path found in Object of the properties, I've tried using just the displayed name, and I've tried using the account name of the object, none of which was recognized. I also tried it with and without the backslash ( \ ) at the beginning of the Identity name.
Obviously I'm doing something wrong. Perhaps this isn't even the command to use, I don't know. Any help would be appreciated.
Just a side question: Why did Microsoft decide to go back to command-line only for some tasks? It's a pain in the rear end to have to learn a whole new set of commands. I know DOS pretty well, but these commands are nothing like DOS. I thought GUI interfaces came about to get away from having to learn commands. Just a rant of mine.
