Free/Busy between 2 Exchange Enterprises and Lotus Notes

    Question

  • Dear.
    We have two AD forests each with their own Exchange Enterprise. In these forests we have Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010. Due to a merger, we also have a lotus notes. Question: did someone tested or deployed a solution or product to sync free/busy information between all these mail infrastructures?

    Thanks in advance,
    Regards,
    Peter

  • Hi Peter,

    you can use transport suite for lotus notes and use exchange 2003 or 2007 as bridghead to make it work. I did not use it but i can see several article on it.

  • The Availability service improves information workers' free/busy information by providing secure, consistent, and up-to-date free/busy information to clients that are running Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. By default, this service is installed with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. In cross-forest topologies where all connecting clients are running Outlook 2007, the Availability service is the only method of retrieving free/busy information. You can use the Shell to configure the Availability service for cross-forest topologies.

    And here is an article about How to Configure the Availability Service for Cross-Forest Topologies for reference.

    In addition, using federated delegation, users in your on-premises Exchange organization can share free/busy calendar information with recipients in other Exchange organizations that are also configured for federated delegation. For details, see this document. Hope helps.
