Conference rooms don't show up in "suggested times"

In Outlook 2007, we've discovered that when scheduling a meeting using the
Scheduling Assistant, if you add a conference room as a resource (or through
"Add Rooms..."), the Suggested Times column does not include the room. In
other words, i create a meeting request from my own calendar in Outlook. If
i click on the Scheduling Assistant and look at the Suggested Times column,
it says "1 of 1 free". That 1 would be me. If i add a room, it still says
"1 of 1 free". If i add people to the meeting request, they DO show up in
the Suggested Times column.



This only happens when i add the room as a room/resource. If i select the
room and add it as Required, it is included in the Suggested Times.



Is that normal Outlook behavior? It seems like you'd want to be able to add
a room AS a room/resource, and not a human attendee and still have it
included in the Suggested Times.



All the rooms are configured as resources on the back-end of our Exchange
2007 (SP1) infrastructure.





Any help is appreciated.

I have not seen this. But I haven't looked. Very interesting to me.
What are you using for your resources? Auto-Accept or the new
Xcng 2007 or Public Folder Calendars?
