I am using exchange 2007 SP2.  I have windows outlook clients and Apple 10.7 I believe that use their calendar.  
The problem is that there is a user that when I add to view his calendar to see when he's available, it's greyed out, I have attached a picture so the issue can be seen.

How do I fix this problem?

Check the permission for the Default in the calendar permissions of the user whose calendar you are trying to view. It should be set to Free/Busy Time. If it is set to None you will not be able to view.

Is that on the Mac or in exchange?  Not sure where to set those permissions.
