View Access to a Room Mailbox in Exchange Server 2010

    Question

  • I created a Room Mailbox in Exchange Server 2010.  I want to grant some users view access only.  I ran the following command in the EMS:

    C:\Windows\system32>Add-MailboxPermission -identity SoarianCal -User GuapoEL -AccessRights ReadPermission

    When I try to open the calendar from the users Outlook account I get a message of 'no connection' at the top and no entries can be seen.  Am I missing something in the command I typed in?  And,  can access be controlled throught the EMC?

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi Hector,

     

    The command you used is to grant users read permission on room mailbox, but  when you try to open the calendar from the users Outlook account, you need have permission on the calendar folder.

     

    You should use command lie to grant the read permission. As far as I know, this permission cannot be granted in EMC.

     

    Add-MailboxPermission

    Before you open other user’s calendar in Outlook, please make sure you have permission on that calendar.

     

    The calendar owner can grant  users permission on his calendar by this way(in Outlook 2010):

     

    Right click “Calendar”->Properties->Permissions->grant corresponding permission to the users

     

    Thanks,

  • This permission is something that can only be controlled through the command line - not EMC.
    Another option would be to grant permissions on the calendar folder itself through Outlook.

    Can you access the mailbox through OWA?

  • Thanks for the reply.  Yes,  I just tested it and I can get to it from OWA.
