Keep People from booking meetings at the same time on multiple resource calendars?

Everyone,
Hopefully the title says it all, but just in case, I'm trying to make it so that in Exchange 2010, people won't be able to book a meeting to multiple calendars at the same timeslot.  So someone goes to book a meeting in one resource calendar for 10AM, then goes and tries to do the same with two others.  How do I stop that from happening?

Thanks!

None of Exchange resources can ever stop from blocking multiple resources at the same time, cause this would mean that you'll have to re-write the code that'll block adding multiple resources in the same meeting invite.

Do you mean 2 people booking the same room at the same time or 1 person creating one meeting in two different rooms at the same time?

Choice B.  I don't want a single person creating duplicate meetings at the same timeslot in different resource calendars.

Thank you!

I dont think you can stop it but anyone invited to multiple meetings will have their time slots show as busy. Do you have someone that is admin to the rooms? So that they accept or decline?

I'm having the autoattendant handle it right now, and we have a couple of delegates.  That's a good point about free/busy indicators, but even if the invited attendee declines the duplicates, the auto-attendant still allows it to show up in the calendar.

Figured as much.  Additionally I'd assume Exchange probably sees a resource calendar the same way as it would see a user's calendar, and why wouldn't someone schedule a meeting with multiple people so it ends up on on differnt calendars for the same timeslot?  Exchange would have no concept of a relationship between the calendars, and therefore wouldn't care.  Thinking the delegates will just need to pay closer attention.
