Exchange 2007 Room Mailbox and Calendar Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the scenario

    Exchange 2007 SP3 MBX Servers

    Exchange 2007 CAS/HUB SP2 (I know this is not supported but it is running at my client ) and they don't want to fix it now.

    So when a user select a room mailbox and reserve via office outlook 2007/2010 (configured to use TCP/IP on fast internet) IT WORKS and GETS SCHEDULED.

    When a user with Office Outlook 2007/2010/OWA is configured to use HTTPS/RPC - The same room mailbox replies that your room is reserved Tentatively. 

    Why?

  • Hi,

    Set the AddNewRequestsTentatively parameter to $true to have the Calendar Attendant put new calendar items tentatively on the calendar. If the AddNewRequestsTentatively parameter is set to $false, only existing calendar items are updated by the Calendar Attendant.

    So, If you don't want to make new calendar items tentative on your calendar, you can set the parameter as $false.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks
