One of the Business Units wants to have access to a shared calendar with different levels of access, to track vacations, sick days etc.
What kind of calendar should we create and how can we achieve that?
I'm network administrator, so I should have access to the Exchange 2010 server.
Please advise.

I would create a resource mailbox.  You can assign permissions to certain users or assign them by groups but all the users would have to do is open the calendar.

For a better understanding of calendar permission levels you can go to this site where the permission levels are defined.

Here is a link that will tell you everything you need to know on how to create and setup a resource mailbox.  In exchange you select new mailbox, specify room mailbox, it will create a user account (the user account will be disabled automatically).  And then adjust how you want it to work.  Like with auto-attendant or even have a user assign to accept or decline requests perhaps for vacations etc.

Here is the link:  http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2010/management-administration/resource-mailboxes-exchange-2010-part1.html

There are 4 parts on how to make adjustments and get a better understanding of resource mailboxes.

So far, so great, thank you, just one more question (hopefully): what would be those 4 parts?
