Hello!
I just set up three conference-rooms in Exchange 2010 by adding New Mailbox -> Room Mailbox.

These 3 rooms can be found for the users in the domain but if I schedule a meeting from 10 to 11 tomorrow, I cannot see that it is booked when I log in from another use on the domain.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Regards

I run the following powershell script to set calendar permissions to allow Limited Details rights to the Default user. Run in EMS


#Custom variables
$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox  -RecipientTypeDetails RoomMailbox
$AccessRights = "LimitedDetails"

#Loop through all mailboxes
foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxes) {

#Retrieve name of the user`s calendar
$calendar = (($mailbox.SamAccountName)+ ":\" + (Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity $mailbox.SamAccountName -FolderScope Calendar | Select-Object -First 1).Name)

#Check if calendar-permission for user "Default" is set to the default permission of "AvailabilityOnly"
    if (((Get-MailboxFolderPermission $calendar  | Where-Object {$_.User -like "Default"}).AccessRights) -notlike $AccessRights ) {

    Write-Host "Updating calendar permission for $mailbox..." -ForegroundColor Red

    #Set calendar-permission for user "Default" to value defined in variable $AccessRights
    Set-MailboxFolderPermission -User "Default" -AccessRights $AccessRights -Identity $calendar
    }
}

Open in new window

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

You ran it in Exchange Management Shell not just in powershell?

Updating calendar permission for TEST_CONFERANCE_ROOM1...
The term 'Set-MailboxFolderPermission' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At C:\mailbox.ps1:17 char:32
+     Set-MailboxFolderPermission <<<<  -User "Default" -AccessRights $AccessRights -Identity $calendar
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Set-MailboxFolderPermission:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

This is what comes out (same error for the 2 other rooms like TEST_CONFERANCE_ROOM2, TEST_CONFERANCE_ROOM3)

I ran this in Exchange Management Shell yes.

Ah there in by lays your problem. That was I believe introduced in SP1.  My first advice, regardless of the question at hand was for you get service packed up!! Your 2 service packs behind now and thats a LOT of fixes/enhancements etc.

Alright, thanks for you help. Can I install SP2 rightaway or do I need to go SP1->SP2?
