Meeting requests and appointments not working as expected

We just installed an Exchange Server and the appointments and meeting requests are not working correctly.

There are 2 main issues:

1) Whenever I schedule an meeting (using the appointment option) and reserve a room, that meeting request is not showing up in my calendar. Isn't that something that would have to be automatically added to my calendar? I don't think I have to invite myself.

2) Whenever I do the same procedure as described above but using a meeting request, the Subject text from the resource calendar and my calendar do not match.

Usually the subject text from the resource calendar is replaced by my name.

Anyone knows what may be happening?

1. appointments are 1 calendar only, so the behavior is correct if you are creating the appointment on the room calendar.

2. The exchange admin can control the subject - most common is removing the organizers name but they can remove the subject and only show the organizer - this way its easy to see who owns the meeting.
