Shared Calendar Rights Issue

Microsoft Exchange
My client is a Los Angeles-based dot com that was recently purchased by a large publishing concern back East. All of the users have enabled accounts in the Los Angeles domain, OFFICE, and many still login to that domain. The other domain, AD, is not administered by the Los Angeles team, but rather by the larger East concern. Their is a container within the AD domain where most of the users in the OFFICE domain have an account. I have recently installed Exchange 2003 in the OFFICE domain and have activated all of the mailboxes. For every mailbox, I have also given rights to the corresponding userid in the AD domain and checked the box that says "associated external account". Now here is the problem. With several users, I have given them delegate rights to see other people's calendars. When they login to the OFFICE domain, they can see all of the shared calendars that they have been given delegate rights to. The problem is that when they login into the AD domain, they cannot see the shared calendars (they get a message that says that the calendar cannot be found). This does not happen for all users that login to the AD domain, just certain users. Could it be possible that the User object in the AD domain is corrupted? Is there a rights issue that I need to resolve in the AD domain? If I deleted the User object in the AD domain and then recreated it, could that resolve the problem??

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am not sure how your infrastructure is setup, because lack of details. Do you have one Exchange Organization or two? One for AD and one for Office? Or, are you using trusts with two seperate domains and one forest? Are there “Cross Forest Trusts” to two seperate forests and two seperate Exchange Organizations? From the information that is in front of me I can not give you a professional solution, except that the problem may lie with insufficient Global Catalog Servers.

    To further define the problem, there is one Exchange organization and the servers reside in the OFFICE domain. There is not Exchange infrastructure in the AD domain.
