Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Hi,
Thanks for the above links.
Ok. I got it how to create room mailbox.
But I have another concern that how to make 2 Room list ( Female Section and Male Section) then assigned rooms based on their respective section.

Moreover, how I will be to create 2 room mailbox with same name. For instance, I have class room 2 in both sections.

Thanks for the clarifications

Not sure whether u can create both with same name. I would advise to create both with different name to avoid confusion. like below:

male.Classroom.2
female.classroom.2

create group of individuals and not of rooms. While creating room permissions, just select the female group for female rooms and male group for male rooms. Once this is done, each of the individual under each group will have right to access the respective category of room. The user will be able to select only a single room.

By creating group of individual i mean creating distribution list on exchange server.

please don't mind. This will be not wise solution in my case to created groups.
I have around 80 individuals and giving membership each one of them to newly created groups would be drastic.

However, 1 thing to be noted I have already Disribution Group and all staff are the members of this group.
