We have Exchange 2010 with a number of resource mailboxes for various rooms. When user's view the room's calendar via the scheduling assistant they can only see if the room is busy or not, they can't see the meeting organiser or subject.

We want to make full details available for some rooms. For a normal user's calendar you just change the "Permissions" tab of the calendar's properties dialog. Would we need to do the same thing for a room's calendar, i.e. log on to a Windows PC, set up Outlook and then adjust the permissions? Or is there some PowerShell magic command I have not discovered?

You can't "log into" a room calendar in Exchange 2010, it's not possible. Follow the powershell example below, it's what you want. –  Tatas Mar 12 '12 at 16:45
You can log into a room calendar in Exchange 2010. You can do this by granting full access permission on the calendar to a particular user. That user can then view the calendar's mailbox in the folders list in their regular Outlook profile, create a new Outlook profile for that calendar mailbox, or view the mailbox in OWA. –  Thomas Feb 25 '14 at 21:22

Exchange Management Shell:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission Room_Alias:\Calendar -User Default -AccessRights Reviewer

Substitute the room's Exchange Alias for "Room_Alias" above.
