Exchange 2010 and Calender Permissions?


Im not sure if this is an issue or by design, I have created a Security distribution group and added myself to it and then added the distribution group to a user calender persmisson as a Publishing reviewer.

The issue is i still see free/busy and not the full information on his/her calender?

I apparently missed the part where you stated it was set for Publishing Reviewer - my apologies. I attempted to delete this comment but it was already viewed, so the delete failed.

My next thought would be to add yourself to the Calendar using your account specifically, not a Group, and see if it works.

Yes adding my account that works, but I need to add a lot of users so I need it to work using group?

I'm not sure it does because I think it relies upon User account SIDs for proper permissions.

I'm out of my office at this point but will try adding a Group to a test mailbox and see if it works. I'm doubtful though.

Ok, so all my tests are unsuccessful. Granted, I only tried a few tests, but the results were the same. Whether I was sharing a calendar, granting access to a mailbox, or just plain giving people access to create Rooms - Groups did not function properly for me on Exchange 2010.

The closest success I had was with a shared mailbox and even then I needed to add some individual names that were in the allowed Group. Some of the Group members could not access what was available to other Group members. I even removed these Users from all other Groups and tried again in case there was some Security applied somewhere I was not aware of.
