Creating Custom Resources for room and equipment mailboxes in Exchange Server 2007

Share this:

Hello folks,

I’ve been seeing some doubts about Custom Resources in Exchange Server 2007.. Then… I realize that it is time to write something about it.

By default all Resource mailboxes have a tab called Resource Information, as it follows:

Then, when we click on Add there is nothing, so time to start our own Custom Resources.. We are able to create custom resources using ONLY the Exchange Management Shell.

Visualizing the Custom Resources..

 get-ResourceConfig

 Creating Custom Resources..

$resource = Get-resourceconfig 

$resource.ResourcePropertySchema.Add(“Room/TV”)

Set-ResourceConfig -Instance $resource

Removing Custom Resources..

$resource = Get-ResourceConfig
$resource.ResourcePropertySchema.Remove("Room/TV")
Note: We can use only Room and Equipment before the "/"
Set-ResourceConfig -Instance $resource
