New Meeting requests on Resource show as Tentative RRS feed

  • Question

  • Last year we switched from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. We were using Outlook 2003. A few months ago we switched to Office 2010. Since then, anytime someone sends a meeting request and books the Conference Room as a resource, it adds the meeting to the Conference room calendar but adds it as tentative and does not auto-accept. I have opened the Mailbox for the Conference Room in Outlook 2010 and under the Resource Scheduling button we do have it checked to auto accept and of course reject anything conflicting. As tentative, people are able to over-book the Conference room. What are we missing?

  • Hello,

     

    Please run the following command to see the settings for the room mailbox:

     

    Get-calendarprocessing -id RoomName |FL

     

    If it is set to “AutoUpdate”, please run the following command to set it to “AutoAccept”

     

    Set-calendarprocessing -id RoomName AutomateProcessing autoaccept

     

    Thanks,

    Simon

  • Have you configured the conference room users as room-type users?

    Set-Mailbox -Identity Room_User_Name -Type Room

    Have you configured the room for automatic acceptance?   See:

    Set-CalendarProcessing

    Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration

    Or configure it using OWA > Options.
