Are all the users on the same Exchange server?  Are you replicating the
Free\Busy system PF to all your servers?

We have a similar problem, Exchange 5.5 sp4 running on 2000 advanced server
in a cluster environment.  All of a sudden we are getting trouble calls from
clients indicating that they cannot see the free/busy time of some clients
that they wish to book a meeting with, notice I said " some " Now here's the
kicker, If I invite 3 clients to a meeting, here is the possible results I
may get, First client's free/busy is available up to April 1st and then is
grayed out, the second client's free/busy is available from April 1st, but
prior is grayed out , and the third is available according to the 2 month
setting we have through default.  ???
 
Things I have tried, called Microsoft, and have an open case as we speak.
They are trying to resolve.
Things I have done on my own, ran the CleanFreeBusy command against some
client and on the most part it seemed to cure the problem, but not all.
Then I have exported and deleted the client's mailbox and recreated it and
then imported all data, and this seems to cure all that I have tried.
We might be looking at *.edb file corruption, and I hope Microsoft has a
cure, because there is no way I want to recreate 2300 Exchange accounts.
 
Any comments will be much appreciated, and if I get a permanent fix, I'll
pass it on../

Chris-
By default, your outlook client (for Outlook 97 or 2000) is set to publish
your calender 2 months in advance.  You can change that in your Outlook
client under Calender options.  I use Outlook 2000 so I go to Tools,
options, calender options, free\busy options and set mine to publish my
calender for 6 months.  I don't know if there is a global setting in the
Exchange server or not.  Maybe one of the gurus can lend a hand here.

Hello all,
 
   Running Exchange 5.5 on Win2000 servers
 
   We have noticed that when scheduling meeting requests for June 1, 2004
and later, the availability is greyed out....   May 31, 2004 and earlier is
appearing as normal.  
 
   Any ideas on this one?
 
Thanks,
Chris
