I'm running Exchange 2010 sp2 update 5 on three servers, 2008r2 sp1, and after three years of working great now freebusy has just stop working on two of my three servers, and it only affects users who's database resides on those two servers.  The two exchange servers where freebusy is not working I'll call A & B, the third server which is working fine I'll call server C.
 
Users who's database reside on server A can only see freebusy infomation of other users who's database resides on server A, the same is also true of Users on server B, they can only see freebusy information of other Users who's database resides on server B, however users who's database resides on server C can get freebusy information from all users on all servers.
 
Has anyone ran into this lately? Maybe a microsoft update bug?

Server restart normally fixes this issue. Try server reboot and check again.

I did reboot one of the servers which resolved the issue, and I'm rebooting the other tonight, however having this happen out of the blue is irritating.  I tried restarting IIS, nothing, then I tried restarting Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology, nothing.  Very frustrating

I faced similar issue long back and i opened case with MS for this issue. According to them, if user on Server A try to Fetch free/busy information for Sever B user and if it not fetched during a timeframe, server A marks Server B as bad server and caches it. After reboot only cache clears automatically.

So, you should check, if there are any network issue or high CPU utilization on servers during production hours.

Secondly, I suggest you to upgrade to Sp3 with RU1.

Note: There is disclaimer bug with RU1, so in case you are using disclaimer, you might face issue after updating to RU1, for fixing it, you can disable the rule and then call MS and get the interim update for free.

You can follow my article for upgrading to SP3, though i wrote it for SP2, however steps are same for Sp3 too.
