Schedule a meeting room failing with the following issue

We are running in an Exchange 2010 server. This message occurs when we try and schedule a room as a resource. We recently moved from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.

Also this error does not appear if I am using a Outlook 2003 Client.

Here is the message I get back when I use a Outlook 2010 client to schedule a meeting.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

You have invited the resource in your New Meeting Request,

as either REQUIRED or OPTIONAL. You must invite the resource

using the RESOURCE button in Select Attendees and Resources

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Any ideas?

When Using OL2010, can you use the rooms button and then choose the resources to add the meeting-rooms?

Is that working fine for you.

did you moved your resource mailboxes from E2k3 to E2010?
Earlier was it configured with the "AutoAcceptAgent"

>> do you see the same issue, if you create a new resource\room mailbox on E2010?

How to Upgrade Exchange 2003 Auto Accept Agent-Based Resource Mailboxes to Exchange 2007
The Auto Accept agent is an Exchange store event sink that automatically processes meeting requests for resource mailboxes. In Exchange 2003, you must use the Auto Accept agent for resource mailboxes. Because Exchange 2007 supports automatic booking for resource mailboxes, the Auto Accept agent is not required. To upgrade an Exchange 2003 Auto Accept agent-based resource mailbox, you must first remove the Auto Accept agent from the Exchange 2003 store, and then move the mailbox to an Exchange 2007 server. After you move the resource mailbox to an Exchange 2007 server, you can configure it to automatically process meeting requests.

How to Convert a Mailbox
In Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server, you had to use shared mailboxes to represent resources. When these mailboxes are moved to Exchange 2007, they become Exchange 2007 shared mailboxes. To take full advantage of the resource mailbox features of Exchange 2007, you must convert them to resource mailboxes.
