In a Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 or Exchange Server 2016 environment, consider the following scenario:
- You create a room mailbox and assign a booking delegate that accepts or declines booking requests by using the cmdlet that resembles the following:
Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity “Room 221” -AllRequestInPolicy:$true -ResourceDelegates “UserA@contoso.com” -AllBookInPolicy:$false -AutomateProcessing 'AutoAccept'
In this situation, you find the room still shows as free, which is not expected. It should be shown as busy after it accepts the meeting request.
- UserB creates a new meeting by setting the Show As field as Free. In addition, UserB adds UserC and Room 221 as attendees.
- UserA accepts the meeting request.
