  • Hi,

    I'm assuming you're using Skype for Business Online, is Exchange on-prem or Exchange Online?  Either way you need to have configured integration.

    You need to be using a single account, not two separate accounts, e.g.

    • Create a Room Mailbox
    • Customise the Room Mailbox (Set-CalendarProcessing)
    • Enable the account for Skype for Business

    Hope this helps,

    Steve

  • I agree with Steve

    without further information; i would recommend to auth your o365 domain so you don't use the @onmicrosoft.*

    then add your room mailbox to SFB as steve mentioned.

    then change the user on the polycom to the room auth.

  • Hello Steve

    If you're kind enough, please explain me this.

    Ok, so I enable the room mailbox for SFB. But that account will not have a password, it is still a room account.

    How will it log in?

  • Hello,

    You can set a password on a resource mailbox using PowerShell.

    If you need instructions on connecting to Exchange Online see here.

    If you are creating a new Room Mailbox:

    $roommbx = “skyperoom2@x500.co.uk”

    $roompass = “x12345!”

    New-Mailbox -MicrosoftOnlineServicesID $roommbx -Room -Name “Skype Room 2“ -RoomMailboxPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString $roompass -AsPlainText -Force) -EnableRoomMailboxAccount $true

    If you already have the Room Mailbox, and want to change the password:

    $roompass = “x12345!”

    Set-Mailbox -MicrosoftOnlineServicesID skyperoom2@x500.co.uk -RoomMailboxPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString $roompass -AsPlainText -Force) -EnableRoomMailboxAccount $true

    Thanks,

    Steve
