Calendar sync issues

I have an SBS 2011 server running exchange 2010. I have multiple users using outlook calendar to reserve a conference room. When one user reserves a time, another user goes in and reserves it at the same time. They should be getting a conflict message, but we are not. The users are using various versions of outlook (2003,2007,2010,2013).

Any assistance in configuring the calendar to throw a conflict message when the calendar is double booked would be of great assistance.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Does this happen for all resource mailboxes?

I would recommend running the following command below to check the status of Allowing Conflicts
Get-MailboxCalendarStatistics -Identity resource1 | fl

Also check what the AutomateProcessing is set to as well.

If this is not set properly you can set it back to false using the following command.
Set-MailboxCalendarStatistics -Identity resource1 -AllowConflicts $false

If this does not work you might want to create a new resource mailbox and test again.
