I have looked all over the forum but can't seem to find the answer in one of the existing threads.
I have 2 Windows 2003 Server R2. One contains OCS 2007 R2 and the other contains the edge server and has 2 NIC's. Currently I can communicate with other users and I am able to call with multiple users over the computer at the same time (we don't want to support phone calls). When I share my desktop with another user and invite a user I recieve the following message: "Cannot perform the selected action. The action may not be permitted by the conferencing service. Please Try again. If the problem persists, please contact your system administrator". Also when I have a conversation with 2 other users the share button is greyed out.
On the OCS 2007 R2 Server I have set a maximum meeting size of 100 in the policy settings. Furthermore there are no errors when validating the different servers.
Does someone know why I can't add another user to an existing desktop sharing session or why the "Share" button is greyed out when having a conversation with more than 2 users?

In the meeting Policy I have checked:
- Enable web conferencing
- Enable program and desktop sharing
- Allow control of shared programs and desktop
- Allow presenter to record meetings
- Presenter can allow attendees to record meetings
- Enable IP Audio
- Enable IP video
Do I need special settings on the edge server perhaps?

This is the policy that is assigned to the users/pool correct? I have only seen this when the incorrect policy was applied.

Like mark said, the only time i've seen this is when that policy is not enabled. Make sure that the policy selected is either set to use default policy, use a specific policy, or per user.
If its set per user, you need to assign that policy with the features enabled to the user. Or you can set a global policy to be one you create. It can get slightly confusing.
But double check those settings, something has to be off in one of the spots.

This might be slightly off topic, but I think it's close enough to be connected to this thread:
How do I see which policy my client is actually being ruled by?
I aske because I just gave myself a per-user policy, supposedly it should prevent desktop sharing, but I still can in Live Meeting. I tried to exit Outlook and Communicator to start from fresh, but that made no difference.
Is there an update delay on the policies or do I need to force it thru somehow?
I've doublechecked my User settings in OCS admin console, and I have indeed the police that should prevent desktop sharing. Just checked in MOC and here the Desktop sharing is prevented. So maybe I have to disable it in a different way for Live Meeting?

I'm back with a new server and I still struggle with conferencing.
Right now I have one Edge server deployed and one front end server, both in a NAT environment. Calling, video conferencing, sharing desktop all works 1on1 but as soon as I want to invite another user (this time the button isn't greyed out), I recieve the message: "Cannot perform the selected action. The action may not be permitted by the conferencing service. Please Try again. If the problem persists, please contact your system administrator". I have a meeting policy which allows a maximum of 20 users in one conference, shared desktop is enabled and the same goes for IP Audio and IP Video.
Since OCS is still not working properly for me, I just need to know what the possible causes could be for this situation. Maybe someone knows all the requirements for conferencing with more than one other user. Is there a kind of checklist that I can use to check if the server meets the requirements?
Thanks in advance,

A little update:
When logging in today at different computers with different users, some but nog all users recieve a message "Limited external calling". What could be the reason for this? I have tried different settings, validated every component without errors/ warnings.
