How to view Outlook Calendar free/ busy information for up to 12 months

Hi there,

I am using Exchange 2010, SP3 and Outlook 2010, SP2. I am trying to figure out how to setup the Outlook Calendar free/ busy availability to show for up to 12 months. By default, it only shows free/ busy for up to 2 months.

I understand that the free/ busy calendar settings can be changed under individual users profile in Outlook -> Outlook options-> Calendar-> free/ busy options. But is there any way to change this setting centrally on the Exchange server so we don't need to change Outlook free/ busy settings on users computers?

Thanks for all your help in advance.

I've followed the instruction from the TechNet article and created a registry key to show up to 12 months on the Exchange 2010 server.

I've noticed now, I am able to see someone's free/ busy Calendar information for more than 12 months... example more than 5 years and it's not restricted for up to 12 months.

Any idea why it allows to see calendar information for more than 12 months?
