Conference room delegate auto accetpting invites

Posted on 2014-04-09

I have 2 users that are delegates for an exchange 2007 conference room. The conference room is set to autoupdate.  Both users have the same permissions on the room. They are both delegates and are editors of the calendar and tasks.

Now one delegate send an invite to the room and the other delegate automatically declines it.  

why would the other delegate automatically decline it. I see not rules in her mailbox for this. The invite ends up in her deleted items. So something is automatically processing it.

Is this a re-occuring appointment that conflicts somewhere? If so it is declined automatically.
Under 2007 an exchange admin can change the settings for this through powershell.

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "Conference Room" -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept -AllowConflicts:$true -AllowRecurringMeetings:$true -ConflictPercentageAllowed 25 -MaximumConflictInstances 3

Sorry the delegate is auto declining the meetings that the other delegate is proposing for the room.  But she said in the past, before there was another delegate that she always had the option of accepting or declining. Is the problem that there are 2 delegates now?

I cant imagine this is the cause since you can have many delegates.
So somehow one delegate is declining an appointment made by a person for which they are delegated...
What happens if you reconfigure one delegatee as a contributing editor?
Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

contributing editor? You mean an author?

Look at the roles with most rights, thats the one closest to delegating.
I have to translate from dutch to english but i am sure you understand what to try.

Editor is the role with most rights. Then come author and reviewer.  The delegate declining the meetings has editor role.
