Attached in the word doc you will see my room calendars. The bottom one i just made and i believe i have it set the same as all the others but outlook is displaying the user icon next to it instead of the room one. I removed them all, added them back in, checked permissions and such. I am trying to figure this out before it goes public so i know it works right.
I should also mention OWA classifies it as Peoples Calendar, and not a room one when i add it there.
Thanks.

It looks like you created a user mailbox instead of a resource mailbox. You can convert it to a resource mailbox using the following:

Example: Set-Mailbox <mailbox_name> -Type Room

Yes it should. It creates a disabled account.

Then it sounds fine. You may just be experiencing replication delays. Have you closed and re-opened EMC. I never trust the EMC after changes. I find it better to just check it all out in powershell.

If it hasn't been used yet then just remove and create a new one. I have ever seen that behavior before.

Does this room mailbox appear in the room mailboxes address list? It seems you have it setup right.

yes it does, except i get the user looking icon when it is listed with all my other rooms, and outlook web access calls it Peoples calendar, like it is tied to a user very odd.

also on my other rooms i do manage full access permissions and add myself to that room like all my other ones, so when i did it on this one, it comes up in my outlook as like a real email box to manage. None of the other rooms do, its strange how it is acting like a user box.

1. Check for any OAB generation issues.

2. Use ADSIEDIT.msc to check the value msExchRecipientDisplayType of this room mailbox.
     It should be 16
        Caution: If you are not familiar with ADSIEDIT.msc, use it with caution.

Q: Are you running it as Resource Forest model? If yes, is this room mailbox linked to a user account by mistake?

Thanks,
Veera.

HI Veera,
I went to the disabled user it created in AD, under adsi.edit and looked up these values. It is type 16 as you said.  I am not sure what resource forest model is but i only have 1 main forest, but when i made the mailbox i tried both emc and powershell and i made it a roomtype and of course it makes that user it auto disables. Its the same steps i followed on all my other rooms, i am wondering if something was different after all these months in outlook or exchange with all the updates they get and such.
