Free\Busy Info for Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010

Hello,

We are having a bit of a weird issue here and sort of a weird request. We have a client who wants to see ONLY Free/Busy when using the scheduling assistant. The shared calendars (meeting rooms) are standard AD users.

This was easy to grant by simply giving them Read Permissions to Everyone for Free/Busy. However they also want to be able to open the shared calendar in their outlook 2010 and see all the meetings and free/busy info for the day.

The only way I could get them to see the free/busy info is if I gave full permissions to everyone. However this allows full details of the meetings and the owner does not want other users seeing the details of the meetings.

Is what they are asking for even possible?

Read Only for Scheduling Assistant for Free/Busy (No Subject Details)
Open Shared Calendar in Outlook 2010 and see the Free/Busy there as well (No Subject Details)

Thank You

No, as far as I am aware this isn't possible.
If you have full mailbox permissions that trumps everything else.
If you set the permissions at the folder level then that will apply both to scheduling assistant and the calendar folder through Outlook.

I apologize I worded this a bit incorrectly:

1.) Only see Free/Busy when using Scheduling Assistant (No Subject Details) for all users. So you are setting the Read: setting to Free/Busy time

2.) Be able to open Shared Calendar in Outlook 2010 and see the Free/Busy there as well (No Subject Details).

The issue is I can get #1 to work, but then #2 shows nothing on the calendar, its blank.
