sharing FreeBusy information between two Exchange Servers
Posted on 2011-10-14
Is this project feasible?
My organization has an Exchange 2007 server running one department, an Exchange 2010 running another department. They're on the same physical network in the same building, but different domains. I'm not sure what the relationship is between the two domains, but IT can change the configuration if necessary. If this can be done.
Each server has a few dozen rooms & other resources. We're wondering if the Scheduling Assistant can be made to show availability of people and resources from both systems? Also, could Outlook VBA code access the FreeBusy information of mailboxes from both systems?
Any comments from experienced hands with issues much appreciated. I don't need to know all the specifics about how to do this, I'm more interested in word from someone who has actually done something similar to this so I can decide to plow ahead. Will there be light at the end of this tunnel? (Now I'm starting to sound like an episode of Sex and the City, I think.)
