PFMIGRATE - Public Folder Replication Issues

Scenario - (to simplify the process the server names below are by version/type)

Primary Public Folder - EX55PFS01 - Exchange 5.5 SP4 w/ Post Rollups
Secondary Public Folder - EX55PFS02 - Exchange 5.5 SP4 w/ Post Rollups

New Primary Public Folder Server - E2K3PFS01 - Exchange 2003 SP1
New Secondary Public Folder Server - E2K3PFS02 - Exchange 2003 SP1

My primary mailbox cluster - E2K3MBXCluster01 - Exchange 2003 SP1
This server has no public folders and is configured to use E2K3PFS01


Last weekend I ran PFMigrate to make sure all of the new public folders had replicas created, including the system folders. I had not planned to remove the replicas until my last 5.5 field site was migrated, pretty much keeping it as the last thing I do. Since I ran PFMigrate, I've noticed some strange things going on.

EX55PFS01 seems to be replicating to E2K3PFS02 fine, however replication between E2K3PFS01 and E2K3PFS02 does not seem to be working properly or not at all in some instances. All of the replicas are configured, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be working. I've tried resetting the replication but that has not resolved the issue. Has anyone had an experience like this?

I have a mailbox policy to replicate every 30 minutes for the E2K3 environment. The 5.5 environment is configured much the same way. Any advice would be very welcomed ... if I need to provide more information let me know.

I've been in and out of town so I haven't had a chance to really look at this ... I promise to follow up and read through the articles you've provided at the end of next week.

Thanks,
