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.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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
