What's the best way to change the timezone for a Conference Room/Room Mailbox that people in my organization schedule through Outlook?
I'm thinking about trying Web Mail (OWA) > Open Mailbox > then change it in there. But is there another area the timezone should be set in? i.e. exchange console or powershell?

i don see a reason why you need to change time zone for a room.

exchange are very time zone aware.

if different user viewing the same room, their time will match against the room regardless what time zone the room set ...

When a user schedules a meeting the timezone is correct on calendar, but when a room declines a request because it's booked, the text in the message says the server's timezone.

So the calendar will be our timezone, but if I schedule a conflicting time with the room 2pm to 3pm central time, it'll say the conflict is with 12:00pm to 1:00pm Arizona timezone.


Your request was declined because there are conflicts.

The conflicts are:

       Organizer and Time of Conflicting Meeting      
       John Doe - Monday, October 03, 2011 12:00:00 PM to Monday, October 03, 2011 1:00:00 PM      

All times listed are in the following time zone: (UTC-07:00) Arizona
