Resources direct booking vs permissions

Hi,

Using Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003. I have 2 resources mailboxes setup
to auto-accept meeting invitations. I want every user in the company to be
able to book the resources. If there is a conflict we want one person to
deal with these problems. As stated in this article:
http://www.slipstick.com/calendar/skedresource.asp#ol2000 I had to gives
Author access to the resources calendar to let everyone book the resource AS
a resource. We can book it as an attendee to the meeting, but I think it
misses the goal.

Is there a way I can setup the thing so everyone are reader but they can
book the room as a resources?

Thanks

Gosh, so you did. I guess what I was wanting to know was
which method did you use for the autobooking solution?
(AutoAccept on Exchange or Direct Book)?

If you are using the AutoAccept then you do not want to give
the clients AUTHOR access. The Author access is used for
the DIRECT booking method.

The AutoAccept will process the mailboxes once they are
registered with the .com that is installed on the Exchange Server.

I will usually give only one or two folks elevated rights on the
Calendar folder. (Editor with the CREATE right removed.)
This allows for any problems that may arise and they will be
able to delete problem meetings. They still must use the
"Make a Meeting" method to book the resource.
