This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to set full access to a resource mailbox schedule. A resource mailbox is a mailbox that represents conference rooms and company equipment. Resource mailboxes are used for conference room or equipment scheduling. The user account that is associated with a resource mailbox is disabled.

You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to set full access to a resource mailbox schedule. You must use the Exchange Management Shell.

To run the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  • Run the following command:

    Add-MailboxPermission -AccessRights FullAccess -Identity ResourceMailbox -User Test1

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Add-MailboxPermission reference topic.
