Mailbox Resource Calendar

Hello experts, hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you can help with this issue. Running Exchange Server 2010 on Server 2008 R2. We just started deploying Mailbox Resource Calendars. Created them all at the same time, Seven of them. All Calendars show Details except for one that shows "Busy". Only one user can see Details on the Calendar that is showing Busy for everybody else. Any preliminary ideas? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Check the calendar permission for default users and change it according to your free/busy need

imkottees, thank you for your reply. I just want to make sure we are on the same page with this issue.

These are mailbox resource calendars for meeting rooms. To follow your suggestion, where should I go to get to the Calendar Permissions to check on the default users and change it?

I apologize if I am not following as expected but I couldn't find the option.

Thanks again.
Following up on my own posting. I have requested Attention but no answer either.

If somebody can help me here, it would be greatly appreciated.

If more information is needed, I will be happy to provide it.
In the properties of the mailbox in the EMC, go to the Resource In-Policy Requests tab and make sure that you've selected either "All Users" or included everyone in the "Selected recipients" box at the top under "Specify users who are allowed to submit in-policy meeting requests..."
Also, you do have to edit the default access level for the mailbox.  Here's the command for the EMS:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission [meetingroom]:\Calendar -User Default -AccessRights Reviewer
hypercat, thank you for the follow up. I am including an attachment with permissions  from the Get-MailboxFolderPermission script (brand new to Exchange PowerShell. Just following some postings from somewhere else. I hope this helps you to get a better idea of what I have. This is a production server and need to be very careful. Do I still follow up on your two steps.

Here is the snip for the Resource In-Policy Requests.

hypercat, sorry about not including the snip the first time around (it happens more often than I would like to accept!)

OK, here we go. I had them totally mixed up.
Ok - the in-policy settings on the mailbox properties look fine.  Again, I think the problem is the default permissions on the Calendar folder in the mailbox. Please change the default permissions to Reviewer and see if that resolves your issue.
hypercat, I ran the Set-MailboxFolderPermissions command and that did it.

Thanks a bunch again for your help, you were awesome!

hypercat, I ran the Set-MailboxFolderPermissions command and that did it.

hypercat rocks!
