Problem upgrading Address Lists and Recipient Policies to Exchange 2007 version.

I am having difficulties upgrading my address lists and recipient policies to the new exchange 2007 version.  Every time I attempt to, I receive the following error:

Unable to validate the filter: 'The Exchange server address list service failed to respond. This could be because of an address list or email address policy configuration error.'
At line:1 char:1

These are the commands that I have attempted. They appear to be valid, but so far no luck:

Set-EmailAddressPolicy Default Policy IncludedRecipients AllRecipients
Set-EmailAddressPolicy "WolverineCarbide" -forceupgrade -RecepientFilter {CustomAttribute1 -eq "14"}
Set-AddressList "89314-AL" -forceupgrade IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 "89314"

Doing a google I found a thread the talks about verifying permissions on various objects in ADSI - Which I have done. I have also cleaned up my Address List , Recipient Policy and GALs so that they are all working without issue.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You appear to be migrating from exchange 200X to 2007.Please verify public folder replication is successful or not.And, under system folders in exchage 200x replication partner exchange 2007 is listed as the only partner or what??
Please ignore if this is a new setup.

OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK
     Default and Both Custom Offline Address Lists -not replicated ( 2003 only)
OWAScratchPad - Each server has its own (not replicated)
SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY - Each server has its own (not replicated)
Schema-root - not replicated (2003 only)
StoreEvents  - Each server has its own (not replicated)
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - In Sync

Which objects need to be replicated?

Also - Not sure where I am to find the "System Folders" and its replication partners (if it is not one of those listed above).

The ones you have metioned are part of system folder.
You need to move OAB,SCHDULE+FREE/BUSY folders to the exchange 2007 box.Read this article

I followed the steps - except the actual removal of the server (I am still doing testing with the joint environment).
But - All Public folders have been moved to the 2007.
RUS has been pointed to the 2007 server.
All stores have their Default Public folder store pointed at 2007.
The 2003 Public folder store has been deleted.

However, still receive the same error.

Unable to validate the filter: 'The Exchange server address list service failed  to respond. This could be because of an address list or email address policy configuration error.'

where is your OAB pointing to??
Public folder replication normally takes a long time.Wait .If the problem persists,we can check & use some other tools.
thanks.

what error did you get when you tried to upgrade?

Also have all mailbox management policies been removed?

This turned out to be caused by a recipient policy that Exchange 2007 just did not like. Exchange 2003 was fine with this policy - and processed it fine - but exchange 2007 wouldn't touch it.

Once I deleted the policy, Exchange 2007 was able to update and create other polices and address lists. I was even able to create one with the exact same search criteria in 2007 - it just didn't like the old one.

The tip-off was the creation of Event 8325 Errors in the application log whenever i cycled the exchange services. It Specifically complained about the Purported Search of the Policy I ended up deleting.
