Default Sharing Policy

    Question

  • Hi

    In our exchange environment we have the Default sharing policy configured to allow the specified users to share their calendars with any domain. I have the one user though, that when added to the policy still gets an error when trying to share their calendar. I know the policy works, because if i add myself to the policy i can then share externally to the same contact.

    Has anyone got any advice on what troubleshooting i can perform?

    Thanks

  • Hi Shane,

    Does this user just a normal user mailbox? And what’s the detailed error message when sharing the calendar?

    It’s recommended to move the mailbox to a new DB and check the results.

    You can also run New-MailboxRepairRequest against this mailbox and check the result.

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi Jason

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes, this is a normal user mailbox and the error i get is below.

    I cant really run the New-mailboxRepairRequest as this disrupts the users access to the mailbox.

    Cheers

  • I have added the user to this tab of the sharing policy and it doesn't apply, but if I add myself it does apply to which is strange.

  • Thanks for your response.

    Please try to recreate your login account’s windows profile on the problematic client PC, then create mail profile to test.

    You can also clean the Outlook cache and select the email address in the “to” filed from the GAL and check the results.

    Please refer to the article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/983062/internal-recipients-receive-an-internet-connection-sharing-file-instead-of-a-calendar-sharing-message-or-policy-does-not-allow-granting-permissions-error-in-outlook

    Hope it helps.

  • So i have tried moving the mailbox to a new database. I have tried doing this from a different machine as well as selecting the user from the GAL but no luck. Its strange because it works for my account but not this user.
