I have Exchange 2010.  We have conference rooms setup as rooms in Exchange.  I want to allow all users to be able to schedule conference rooms through the Outlook Web Access.

I can view the schedule for the room and reserve it without Outlook.  But When I try to the same through OWA, I get the message "you do not have permission to perform this action"

That's strange. Can you setup a new test conf room and test it with OWA again. Make sure it is a room mailbox, not a normal mailbox. I guess current mailbox is also not a room mailbox.

I just created a new room.  It performs the same way.  I can schedule on it in Outlook, but not through OWA.

Are you trying to open that as additional mailbox?

Open that?  What is that?

I go to the calendar for the room in OWA.  Click new to create a meeting or reservation and I get the error.

The operation couldn't be performed because object 'roommailbox' couldn't be found on 'myserver'

I figured it out.  I had to right click on the mailbox in the distribution groups list.  I selected manage full access permissions.  I added domain users to full access permissions.  Now all users can open the calendars and reserve rooms.

I was able to figure out that it must be a permissions issue since it worked one way, but not another.  I found where to manage permissions for the resource and added the users that need access.  It now works fine.
