Hi,

We have set up 3 Boardrooms (A, B, & C) for resource booking.  

Does anyone know the impact of changing the name of the resources for bookings that have already been accepted?  

Example:
I have sent a meeting invite to User A for Boardroom A.  User A does NOT work for my company and he has accepted my invite.

On Tuesday, the Exchange Sys Admin changes the name of Boardroom A to Boardroom B.

What impact will this have on User A who accepted the original invite to Boardroom B?
Will Outlook automatically update his Calendar with the new Boardroom location?  What exactly will happen?

I don't want to make any changes to any resources that will screw up prior bookings.

Thanks to all who answer in advance!

Look firstly i can say the Changes wont show or update external users

For Internal users i dont think this will change until a manual intervention is done by someone and an update send across .... I would say create a new one and block any new meetings to this room with a Autoreply to use the new Room Mailbox
