Hello Experts - Does SBS2011 impose a limit on how many shared calendars a user can add to Outlook 2010  ?

If there is a limit is there a way to increase it ?

I have read that the throttling policy can be modified but wanted to check first

thanks

SBS 2011 Does not impose any limitations
I have 3 in addition to my personal calendar

Have you found an issue?

I was wondering as this particular site has about 40 user accounts and everyone's calendar is shared with everyone else and some shared calendars can't be opened from time to time.

 If I re share the faulty calendar and resend the link it starts working again.

This only seems to affect Outlook Anywhere.

Could a missing autodiscovery DNS record cause this too ?

I can't imagine why there would be a need for Everyone sharing their personal calendars.
If they need a shared calendar, then public folders is the place to do that.   If you want to create a meeting invite, you simply add the person using the scheduling assistant and it will show if they are free or busy.

This may be a resource issue on the Exchange Server, but it would not be a DNS issue.
How big are the .ost files of those using Outlook Anywhere?

Yes strange requirement I know. I doubt any ost files would be over 5 GB

Still pretty big and remember it has to refresh that information every connection so depending on connection speed...could be an issue.

Adding the autodiscover record has fixed shared calendars, offline address book and out of office assistant for Outlook Anywhere staff

Now have a certificate problem with Outlook but that's another story
