Shared Mailbox Calendar Sharing

Hello experts!

This should be an easy one, but I'm stumped. We are currently running Exchange 2010 SP2. I have created a shared mailbox via powershell, added it to the correct ABP, and set the full access / send as permissions appropriately. However, when a user with full access attempts to share the calendar on this multi user account,  the option is greyed out. I cannot figure this out!

I've even created a normal account (non shared mailbox, simply a "user mailbox") and attempted to give the same full access permission. Testing shows the same thing occurs - the option for sharing the calendar is greyed out...

I feel like I'm missing something really simple, it's frustrating!

I'll leave this webpage up and check back frequently for any questions you may have.

Thank you!

You cant share a another users calendar from your Outlook Profile :(

So simple create a Outlook profile for the Shared Mailbox and share its calendar :)

Check the permissions by:
Get-MailboxFolderPermission -identity “Name of the shared mailbox:\Calendar”

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Unfortunately, my powershell knowledge is quite limited... here's the results of the command:


RunspaceId   : dd638cb7-dfd0-4c85-b989-808df58bf829
FolderName   : Calendar
User         : Default
AccessRights : {AvailabilityOnly}
Identity     : Default
IsValid      : True

RunspaceId   : dd638cb7-dfd0-4c85-b989-808df58bf829
FolderName   : Calendar
User         : Anonymous
AccessRights : {None}
Identity     : Anonymous
IsValid      : True

It looks to me like the users I've added with full access are not showing up

To give permissions to those users you have to use this commands:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity “Name of the shared mailbox:\Calendar” -User UsertoGetRights -AccessRights Editor

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity “Name of the shared mailbox:\Calendar” -User UsertoGetRights -AccessRights Editor

Ran the: Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity “MyCalendar:\Calendar” -User myuser@mydomain.com -AccessRights Editor

RunspaceId   : dd638cb7-dfd0-4c85-b989-808df58bf829
FolderName   : Calendar
User         : myuser
AccessRights : {Editor}
Identity     : myuser
IsValid      : True


Everything looked great! Ran successfully and everything. However, I logged into "myuser" and found the share command was still greyed out. I read through the articles and they do not seem to account for this.. :(

Sorry for the delay in my response. I was trying to do some PS commands and really screwed up the server yesterday! Anyway, I'm using Outlook 2010. I am trying to share the shared calendar, not my own.

As for a screenshot, I'm not really sure what you want there. When you right click the calendar and select share, all the options are greyed out :(
