Exchange 2010 Room Resource Mailbox Showing Tentative or Nothing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've tried this with both the EMC and PowerShell with identical results. If I create a Room resource mailbox and then create a meeting using the scheduling assistant in Outlook, the meeting shows up as Tentative on the room calendar. If I use:

    Set-CalendarProcessing -id 'room name' -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept

    cmdlet, then create a new meeting, I get zero feedback from the room object at all. Nothing shows up as tentative, or anything, it is as if nothing is happening at all.

    I should also note that I have unchecked "Mark pending requests as tentative" option as well.

    Here's the output of Get-CalendarProcessing -id 'room name' | FL:

    RunspaceId                          : 3eabd84e-375f-4668-a4ba-569166d2a31b

    AllBookInPolicy                     : True
    RequestInPolicy                     : {}
    AllRequestInPolicy                  : False
    AddAdditionalResponse               : False
    AdditionalResponse                  :
    RemoveOldMeetingMessages            : True
    AddNewRequestsTentatively           : True
    ProcessExternalMeetingMessages      : False
    RemoveForwardedMeetingNotifications : False
    MailboxOwnerId                      : some.domain/Users/Conference Room Test
    Identity                            : some.domain/Users/Conference Room Test
    IsValid                             : True

    I've been scouring the web for hours trying to find a fix for this but the only thing I've found is the cmdlet that sets the mailbox to autoaccept. I've also assigned myself permissions to the mailbox and logged into it via OWA, but can't find anything in there to change that might help. The only thing that has worked is to manually accept the meeting for the room object from inside OWA.

    Ideas?

  • A few more hours of banging my head on this and I figured out the problem.

    The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Assistant process didn't auto-start.

  • I believe you want AllRequestInPolicy set to $True.

    Just tried that and no dice, same behavior. The event doesn't get accepted, nor does it show on the room calendar.
