I have a Resource mailbox used as a conference room and need to change the name of the conference room.  How can I go about doing this so User's see the new conference room name when they do a dress book search?

Thanks

The current name is IG_ConfRm-Tinas Office

I need to change it to IG_ConfRm-QAOffice

Ive gone into the EMC and changed the display name and alias to be IG_ConfRm-QAOffice.  I created a SMTP address for IG_ConfRm-QAOffice and made it the primary.  I also enstered anywhere within EMC dialuoge box where I found old address I put IG_ConfRm-QAOffice.  I ran the cmd on Exchange Shell -


set-mailbox -id 'IG_ConfRm-tinas office' -name "IG_ConfRm-QAOffice" -displayname "IG_ConfRm-QAOffice"


  I downloaded new GAB from outlook client but when I search for the calendar it still shows the old name.  Any ideas?

Did you force the OAB to update?

get-offlineadressbook | update-offlineaddressbook

If you look in OWA, does it show the correct information there? OWA is live.
