Outlook Resource Scheduling for split Meeting Rooms

We have a large conference room that is set up as a resource. The problem comes in when the room's dividing wall splits the room into 2 smaller rooms. We have run into an issue where people can schedule one of the smaller rooms and still have someone schedule the large room on it own thus creating a conflicting meeting.

Any ideas? We are using Exchange 2010 and Office 2010.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

Maybe remove the Large Room resource and just publish the 2 small rooms as Resources? I suppose that way if a user needs the big room then you could book both rooms?

I've actually tried this and while the user can book just one smaller room another user tries to book the larger room but only the other small room is booked.

Here's a better explanation of what i did. Room 1 (Small room), Room 2 (Small room).

if someone books Room 1 at 3pm another user books room 1 and room 2 at 3pm the room 1 will be declined but room 2 will be accepted. I need room 2 to be declined as well.
