free busy not showing for new accounts

I created a few mailboxes (Exchange 2003 SP2) to have shared calendar for conference rooms at our new office.

It's been nearly 24 hours and when trying to view the schedule for these, it's all unavailable.  I have logged in to those accounts with Outlook and OWA; also scheduled a meeting with all of those and free/busy still shows unavailable.  I've ran outlook with /cleanfreebusy and no difference.  Am I missing something here?

You may want to creat a dummy meeting/calendar event, so the calendar for that particular mailbox is initialized.

From Outlook 2010, go to File > Options > Calendar tab > Free/Busy Options button in the Calendar Options section on the right > Other Free/Busy button > set the Publish months to more than what it is set to now (hopefully it is not 0). I would close and restart Outlook to see if the issue is now resolved or not.

Check the same setting if Outlook 2007 is your email client from Tools > Options > Calendar Options > Free/Busy Options.

I did send a meeting invite to all 6 of those.
I also looked at the publishing settings and shows 2 months.

Been almost 2 days and still hasn't published.
Just tried to create another invite and the scheduling tab shows all  \\\\\\\
