i have created 3 exchange 2003 resource rooms.  they will accept meetings but you can not see any free busy information when scheduling.  it just has ////// lines on the calendar.  if you send a meeting request and reopen it you can see that meeting only in the calendar.

i gave default user author permissions.  no other permissions are there.

Thanks

Check if Outlook has the free busy information set the publish.

In Exchange 2003, the free busy information is publish in public folders.

The free busy information is published in intervals of 15 minutes so you need to be patient.

In regards to the /////, are you saying the meeting is still set as tentative versus accepted?

You may want to review the scheduling options in Outlook.

the ///// is "no information" showed for the free/busy information.  these are mailboxes not public folders.  you other links do not apply to the situation.  these are brand new mailboxes that i setup.

Just curious, are your clients on "cached mode"?  Have you tried it without cached mode enabled?

this was a duh issue.... it was showing "///////" which means no information.  that's because they are brand new.  I put a test appointment out there and everyone can see it.

thanks everyone for your assistance.
