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

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

you'll need a mailbox with that.   it is integral to the Exchange mailbox

Try this

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 ?

Thanks,

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.  

thanks

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?

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

Solution:

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"
Tested
Done.
