Exchange 2010 Calendar Permissions Inconsistant on Outlook 2003

Hello,

We have recently migrated an exchange 2003 network to exchange 2010. Our

process took a few weeks and essentially we followed steps similar to this

article:

http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/47632

This network has perhaps 80 users; 20 users have access to about 30 other

user's calendars, their permissions are set as owners -all users use OL2003

What we are experiencing are problems with users on Outlook 2003

consistently accessing shared calendars. If staff try to open another's

shared calendar they often get this error:

"the connection to the microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be

online or connected to complete this action"

If they are in a shared calander & go to another program & back, they will

get an error stating they do not have sufficient permission to open the

calendar folder, or operation failed. They can also get this error if they

have opened too many calendars or received an error on attempting anyone of

them. Although I can't find a common denominator for this problem, one work

around is have them close and open outlook. They will then regain access to

the calendar they were just blocked from before, though they may now be

blocked from another's they just had access to before they closed and opened

Outlook.

I can replicate this problem on a new pc, fresh load of XPPro and Office 2003.

On the Exchange 2010 server I have run this command to disable encryption

Set-RpcClientAccess "Server Exchange_server_name "EncryptionRequired $True

This is NOT an issue with Office 2010 beta!

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ken. I am having this exact same problem after a 2003 to 2010

migration. Have you had any luck resolving it?

Thanks,

Matt
