Conclusion : SP1What types of issues will this solve

  • This will solve the problem for those users who had the Calendar Repair Assistant enabled.

    • Occasionally, a user will see a meeting request in their calendar that was put there by the Calendar Repair Assistant as part of the repair. There is a large notice at the bottom of the calendar item that it was put there by the Calendar Repair Assistant.

  • However, users who do not have the Calendar Repair Assistant enabled would continue to experience problems.

  • Anyway, it is highly recommended that you identify the source of Calendar alterations if these happen frequently ! The CRA will repair inconsistencies but too frequent inconsistencies are not normal at all !

    • Causes can include but are not limited to:

      • Blackberry Server misconfiguration or bug

      • Too much delegates on a calendar that creates conflicts resulting in Outlook meeting disappearance (when a user update a meeting, Outlook deletes the original one and replaces it with the new/updated one)

      • Add-ons on Outlook that cause meeting disappearances

      • File level Anti-Virus scanning the Outlook’s OST files
