This article applies to:
Exchange 2010 SP1 Rollup update 5

PROBLEM
After you move a room mailbox from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 meeting requests are not processed automatically any more.

CAUSE
The mailbox is not converted to Room Mailbox object type and/or Resource Booking Attendand is not turned on.

SOLUTION
In Exchange 2010 users, resources and rooms are different object types with a lot of new functionalities, especially for te rooms.

After you move room mailbox from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 it has to be converted to a Room Mailbox first. Coverstion is done by using PowerShell. Below is PowerShell command example which will go through a list of mailboxes on an  Exchange 2010 server you specify , pick up those that have word room in their name, convert them to room mailboxes and set the Resource Booking Attendand to automatically process the meeting request.

Get-Mailbox -Server YOUREX2010SERVER | Where {($_.Name -ilike "*room*") -and ($_.RecipientTypeDetails -ne "RoomMailbox")} | Set-Mailbox -Type Room | Set-CalendarProcessing -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept
