Hi, when i am trying to add any new meeting request through Outlook i am getting error "Resource has declined your meeting because it is recurring. You must book each meeting separately with this resource." all my users are getting the same problem.

We are using original windows XP and office 2007, and also updating patches on all the machines regullary.

Please help me out to resolve this issue.

What version of Exchange server? Are you trying to book recurring appointments?

Are you using Auto accept scripts for the conference room?

The Admin can check the setting on the conference room using this cmdlet:

Get-MailboxCalendarSettings MeetingRoom_name |fl

the two properties he needs to check are these:

AutomateProcessing : AutoAccept
AllowRecurringMeetings : True



I am having the same problem. When I pull out those properties, it shows them as correct. I tried flipping it to flase and back to make sure it was set but I am still having the issue. been searching on the web and not having luck...

Here are the settings:

AutomateProcessing : AutoAccept
AllowConflicts : False
BookingWindowInDays : 1079
MaximumDurationInMinutes : 8888
AllowRecurringMeetings : True
EnforceSchedulingHorizon : False
ScheduleOnlyDuringWorkHours : False
