MS Exchange Issues

By manu.rao ·
In our Exchange setup, we cannot see other people's calendars when we try to arrange meetings; this is true even when the other person regularly updates their calendar and is on the same domain as you!

We also get an error message everytime we set up a meeting or accept/decline a meeting request. I suspect that this message is related to the above described problem, but I am not sure.

The message reads: "Unable to update public free/busy data. The contents of this public folder are currently unavailable. Either the Microsoft Exchange Server computer servicing this public folder is down or the public folder has not been replicated to this site. See your admin."

How can I resolve this issue and ensure that calendars of people are available to those who are trying to set up a meeting.

This is an Exchange setup issue and there are likely several parts to the answer but the problems are related.

The place to start, however, is at someone's desktop. You want to right-click on the Calendar, choose Properties and then select the Permissions tab. You'll probably find that only the owner has any rights to that folder so you'll need to add the appropriate permissions.

Then you'll need to use Exchange Administrator to check on the Schedule + Free Busy folder. Look first to make sure there is a replica of this folder on your server (the right-hand window in the display) and then look at the permissions.

If you need further help from there, please feel free to write back. Also, these kinds of issues usually get a faster response if posted in the Messaging/e-mail forum.
