exchange 2010 calendar permission deployment

Dear experts,

One of my customers needs to deploy calendar permission across the organization. We have Exchange 2010 SP2, Windows 7, Office 2010/2007. It is about 20 users...

Unfortunately it is not possible to use group based permissions while each user has specific requirements.

I'm thinking about PowerShell script where each user will have as many "Add-MailboxFolderPermission" lines as colleagues (each colleague = single command).

Does anyone have any experience with this?


Regards,
Jarda

Sir Shell is the only apart from Outlook which could be some pain .... now what i do is simply have it all in PS1 and just run it

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "User1:\Calendar" -User "User2" -AccessRights "Rights"
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "User1:\Calendar" -User "User3" -AccessRights "Rights"
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "User1:\Calendar" -User "User4" -AccessRights "Rights"

Do you mean that each user wants different permissions or just different users?
Groups would still be the most efficient way of doing this, it just depends on how complicated the permissions get.

For example if Bob wants a number of users to access his mailbox with Reviewer permissions, then create a group called "Bob Reviewer", grant that permission to the calendar, then add users to it. Much easier to add and remove users as required to a group.

Otherwise get users to do it themselves through Outlook!

Hello Rancy, Simon,

Thanks for your suggestions. Both of you are rignt.
It seems there is not the best solution for my case, so I have to choose the lesser evil...

I will wait a few days If someone come up with something new and then I will accept your solutions.


Kind regards,
Jarda
