Here is the summary:
1. Grant delegate permission using Outlook or OWA (aka "Classic Delegation")
2. Grant delegate permission using Exchange Control Panel (aka "Booking Delegation")
There are three problems with the "Classic Delegation" for conference rooms:
- First, since rooms are "disabled accounts", it's hard to log into them.
- Second, Classic Delegation creates two rules -- one visible (IPM Subtree folders), and one invisible (think NON-IPM Subtree folders.) When you change/remove a classic delegate, the hidden rule does not always get deleted and thus still remains in force. (Why? Outlook tries to be helpful, and when it sees there is a hidden rule, it uses the hidden rule.)
- Third, the classic delegation rules run at a higher priority than booking delegation rules. More ways to confuse administrators.
Sumatra recommends you assign room delegates using the "Booking Delegation" approach. You can either use Exchange control panel to assign booking delegates, or PowerShell. We prefer PowerShell.
There are several things you must do, depending upon how you want to handle room reservation requests
Ensure automated processing of meeting requests is set.
Example: Set automated processing for conference room 101B
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings cr_101b -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept
1. Ensure automated processing of meeting requests is disabled.
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings cr_101b -AutomateProcessing None
Example, Grant delegate "riuliano" send as permissions on behalf of Room CR 101B
Add-ADPermission cr_101b -Trustee email@example.com -AccessRights "Send As"
