Several factors may lead to the issue when the Office 365 users don’t receive any confirmation after you successfully schedule a meeting or an appointment for an on-premises room mailbox in either Outlook client or Outlook Web App in Office 365. To solve it, please check the following settings:

  1. If your on-premises room mailboxes are not hosted on Exchange 2010 or 2013, please move the room mailboxes to Exchange server 2010/2013 mailbox server first.
  2. Check if the room mailboxes are set to automatically accept the booking requests.
  3. Also, once the room mailboxes are hosted on Exchange server 2010/2013 mailbox server, please set the ProcessExternalMeetingMessages parameter to True by running the following cmdlet on the on-premises Exchange server:

Set-CalendarProcessing ”<Room Name>”  –ProcessExternalMeetingMessages $True

——————————————————————

1. All on premise mailboxes are on Exchange 2010

2. All room mailboxes are set to automatically accept the booking requests

3. I checked the ProcessExternalMeetingMessages on all of the rooms and it was set to $false. I set them to true and then tried booking a room twice. I did not receive a response back either time. It was still set as Tentative. I’ll try again later to see if the problem takes some time to propagate through the system.

Automating User Provisioning in Office 365

The new Office Garage Series

 

Microsoft provides tools to import and synchronize user objects from an existing Active Directory environment, perform bulk CSV list imports or use custom PowerShell scripts to populate the identity store with User Principle Names and required directory attributes.

The final frontier from an automation perspective is really to set up ADFS and single sign-on as a way to ensure that your policies for password updates and the service authentication itself integrates with your existing tools and policies. The best place to go for all of this is the Office 365 deployment center on TechNet. It walks you through the right solution depending on your organization size and needs.
