Hello all -
We are in the process of moving Exchange 2010 (SP1 rollup 5) from an older server to a new beefier box. The process we are using is simply installing Ex2010 on he new server and moving everything to it and then we'll remove the old server.
Up to now, all has been fine. What we noticed today is that when we move a room resource mailbox to the new server, the auto-accept stops working. In looking at it further, we noticed that we cannot enable the Resource Booking Attendant on the new server - the checkbox for that is grayed out in the EMC when we open properties on a room resource mailbox.
The attchment is a screenshot of what the properties look like and you will notice the 'locked' chekbox as well as several mising tabs.
I think I am just missing something simlpe here, but I was unable to find any good info on the web in regards to this. I found a lot about how to create room resources and all, but not much about the Resource Booking Attendant or its workings.
Any help would be appreciated.
PS - the Mailbox Assistant service is started (even restarted) on the new server.
