I've researched this and can't find an answer that fixes it.  I have a client with Exchange 2010.  They are able to create conflicting meetings on a room calendar.  The room calendar settings are below.  The Default and Anonymous permissions on the room are set to PublishingEditor.  Is there anything obvious from the below that I'm doing incorrectly?

If users are opening it as additional mailbox, if might allowed to do it. Check what permission you have given.

No, they aren't opening it as an additional mailbox.  They have the calendar showing in their Calendars screen and are just adding appointments manually.  I tested this as well in OWA as a regular user and was able to add a conflicting meeting without a problem.

Can you check the resource policy setting for this room mailbox and check if allow conflict meeting option is checked or not.

It is not checked.  That is what the "AllowConflicts: False" line in my original post details as well.

I opened Outlook as the lobbyconf user and the two resource checkboxes were NOT checked.  I checked them.  I also set the default and anonymous perms on the calendar to just Author instead of Publishing Author.  

No change - I can still create conflicting appointments.  I really thought this was going to solve it.

Okay, would you move this mailbox to another DB and check again.

I created a new TempDB database and moved the two mailboxes to it - no change.  Conflicting meetings are still allowed.  When creating the meetings, the tip shows there is a conflict but it nonetheless allows them to be created.

I appreciate your continued help.

I just learned that manually creating conflicting appointments on a room calendar is always possible.  Creating appointments with the scheduling assistant now results in a Declined email, so performing the above actions was successful.  Thank you for your assistance!
