How to create an Exchange 2010 calendar ?

I have exchange 2010 and would like to create a calendar to manage the On-Call IT people. I need just the calendar, not mailbox. Thanks for your help

Well no one answered me correctly in a way that I will feel confident about it.


Create a domain user user account called "On-Call Calendar". No password expiration and not able to change password options checked.
Gave yourself full rights to that mailbox "On-Call Calendar"
From your Outlook, search the "On-Call Calendar" through the GAL. It will show up under Shared Calendars
Give the respective permissions to the users so they can access the "On-Call Calendar"

Hmm that is a powershell script. Scary, very scary.. I do not want to run that on my Exchange environment. Do you have another way ?

Justin EvansCommented:
if you like you can hide the mailbox from the GAL

and I think this article may be of interest

and can you rephrase the question as I don't quite understand.

Not scary promise.  From Microsoft ,  give it to your IT who look after the exchange server,  they will know what to do with it,   I think this is the best solution unless anyone else has any ideas?
