Error updating busy information exchange 2016

In the comments of my article about Exchange Server 2010 Room mailboxes some readers wanted to know how they can configure the Room mailbox to show more details about existing meetings in the free/busy information that is revealed to other users on the network.Consider the scenario where a room is booked, and perhaps another person wants to contact existing meeting organizers to ask if they can remove a booking to make room for a more important one, but the free/busy information (as seen in the Outlook Scheduling Assistant) doesn't indicate who made the bookings.This is caused by the default permissions on the mailbox's calendar.These default permissions are set to show only the availability information (eg free, busy, tentative) but not any other details.

You can modify all the default permissions on Room mailboxes with the following commands in the Exchange Management Shell.Paul is a Microsoft MVP for Office Servers and Services.He works as a consultant, writer, and trainer specializing in Office 365 and Exchange Server.Paul is a co-author of Office 365 for IT Pros and several other books, and is also a Pluralsight author.This document is written to show how to set the Free-Busy options for the Outlook email clients.
