We have several Conference Room calendars  that we schedule daily meetings for and now we would like to add a new Rooms List to synchronize with the Public Folders Conference Calendar.  So if someone starts a new meeting, they choose the Conference Room from the Rooms Lists and it also reserves the time on the Public Folders Conference calendar.  Can this be done and how can it be easily done?  Any assistance offered would be appreciated.

I think you would have to program it.
The public folders calendars are a completely separate thing, and were destined to be removed after Exchange 2010. Microsoft have changed their mind, and there will be more things for shared calendars in Exchange 2013.
However in 2010 you have the old public folders that had been around since Exchange 5.5

Look forward to Exchange 2013.

Perhaps someone else can help...

When Public folders are "special mailboxes" all these things will become possible...

http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2013/planning-architecture/exchange-2013-preview-public-folders-part1.html

"Besides PFs now being special mailboxes, there is no longer a Public Folder Database! The best part is that PF replication now uses the continuous replication model, and high availability for the PF mailboxes is achieved through a DAG, thus moving away from a Multi-Master Replication Model PFs had, to a Single-Master Replication Model of DAGs."

I see.  It looks like a lot of improvement in Exchange 2013.  I guess I am just confused on why anyone would use the Room Lists then over Shared Conference Room calenders if the Room Lists don't seem to let everyone know if the room is available?

They do if you use the meeting scheduler, though because there is no compatibility yet, we can't really test...

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
