Exchange: Free/Busy Not Available After Mailbox Move
After migrating mailboxes to another Exchange server, Free/Busy information may not be available. Viewing this user's Free/Busy, produces slashes with no information.
Try running Outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy first. If you moved the mailbox across administrative groups, you will need to use the Exchange Profile Update Tool which you can download here http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=873214. If you are also trying to query free/busy information from users across sites, try putting a local replica of that site's free/busy. If all fails, try deleting the PR_FREEBUSY_ENTRYIDS for the affected users MB using MFCMAPI.
1. Download MFCMAPI, also known as MAPI Editor. http://www.microsoft.com/downloa

Editor window. Click Session, and select Logon and Display Store Table.

with an account that has full rights to your Exchange server, otherwise you will
receive the following error message below when we open the temp table.

4. Once logged in, click MDB, and select Get Mailbox Table. A new window display
opens "Server Mailbox Table" From here, you can select the server name you wish
to work with. Select default settings and click OK.

that whos Free/Busy is not available.
