PROBLEM

After migrating a room mailbox from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 the room is incorrectly migrated to a Linked Mailbox type although its account resides in the local Active Directory. When you try to convert it to Room Mailbox type by using the Set-Mailbox PowerShell commnad, you receive the following error:

 

      "Converting mailbox "Mailbox Name" from type "LinkedMailbox" to type "RoomMailbox" isn't supported.

 

SOLUTION

 

1)  Get the database and username paramters for the specific user

     Get-Mailbox -Identity "RoomName" | Select-Object Database, SamAccountName

Note the database and username as you will need them in the following comands: 

 

2) Disconnect the mailbox

     Disable-Mailbox -Identity "RoomName"

 

3) Connect the mailbox back to the account
     Connect-Mailbox -Identity "RoomName" -Database "Database" -User "Username"

 

4) Convert the mailbox to the Room Mailbox type:
     Set-Mailbox -Identity "RoomName" -Type Room | Set-CalendarProcessing -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept
