Add a view or some other mechanism for checking to see if Double Bookings exists in the Resource Reservation Database.  
This is necessary because double bookings can get created in the R&R database if the busytime database becomes corrupt and is no longer returning correct busytime information for Rooms and Resources.
This would provide a process for checking to see if any Double bookings exist

This should not be necessary as of 7.0 with the entire redesign of the Rooms & Resources (R&R) system. The new Rooms & Resource Manager (RnRMgr) task has sole control over both request processing and busytime updates so the system has none of the older designs weaknesses.

For a good overview, check out the Lotusphere 2005 presentation on the new system (along with a design overview of the older system to help everyone better understand the changes and why they were done).

The primary design objective of the new R&R system is to NOT allow double bookings. If you have deployed 7.x (or 8.x) then you should not get any double bookings. Preexisting double bookings are not corrected but no new double bookings will be created.

If you are using 7.x/8.x and you are getting any new double bookings, open a support ticket ASAP so we can investigate it.
