Allowing all users to reserve a conference room in OWA

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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.

can you run and post the result for below command.

Get-mailbox -identity roommailbox | fl

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.
