Errors when moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to 2007

When I move mailboxes to my Exchange 2007 from 2003, I get a list of errors to my Event Viewer of Event ID 1022.  I have to then move them back because i dont want there to be any issues:

Logon Failure on database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" - Windows account NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM; mailbox /o=pcma.org/ou=pdc/cn=Recipients/cn=techsupport.
Error: 1144
Client Machine: SATURN2
Client Process: Microsoft.Exchange.Search.ExSearch.exe
Client ProcessId: 0
Client ApplicationId: Client=CI

Any suggestions to why this is happening?  Would this also have anything to do with why the address books are coming back with sync errors in their Outlook clients?  This is what I get for that:

Status: offline   I am getting the following error message from Outlook 2007 when performing a send/receive.
15:02:18 Microsoft Exchange offline address book
15:02:18  Not downloading Offline address book files.  A server (URL) could not be located.

Well, goijng through it seemed a bit confusing, could you perhaps break it down for me, I know it mentions the RUS.  I do have 2 DC in my network and the PDC should be listed as my GC.  It just seems it was all over the place and i really didnt know how to follow it, thanks?.

Is the RUS something I have to look up on my Exchange 2007 server or is it only viewed through ESM on the 03 server?  Also, I noticed when i did check the RUS on my Exchange 2003 server, it was pointing to that exchange server itself which im sure its suppose to.  Now that I am moving over to a new server, do i need to change it to point to my new one or do i need to create new RUS's for my new exchange?  Im just not sure how to do the process involving my Exchange 2007 server, thats all.

Rus is something you can only view through ESM on the 03 server. I believe some parts of RUS were removed on 2007.

Here is how to change the DC in your RUS properties http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF017.html

You want it to be able to authenticate and check the GC aswell.

Log into the actual exchange box, and use ESM on that, don't use ESM from a differnet management box.

Well, under both RUS components, it lists my Exchange 2003 server.  Would I need to just change that part to go to my new exchange or do i need to recreate 2 new RUS components to go to my new exchange server.  The RUS already have the correct DC pointing which is also my GC server listed.

Also, try using power shell
Use the move-mailbox cmdlet with the -GlobalCatalog parameter and use the GC in the site of the new Exchange 2007 server. This way, you will be able to access the mailbox almost imidiately after the move.

Well, i know i have to write something like this to move another box:

Move-Mailbox pcma\Vicky -Universe.hq.pcma.org -Saturn2 "First Storage Group\Mailbox Database"

But how do i write it with the -GlobalCatalog parameter?  I tried doing it but i am writing the paramter wrong.

Ok, i believe i know what the issue was which seemed to have resolved itself.  When i was moving over mailboxes from my 03 to 07, i was doing it while the user was logged on instead of offline.  I just then moved a good majority of the mailboxes in the evening after everyone had left and it came up with no errors to my event viewer.  I do notice one thing though and hope you can help me with this.  After i move the user to 07, i notice that when they open their outlook, including myself, i see that they have quite of bit of sync error logs appearing showing something like these:

9:17:55 Synchronizer Version 12.0.6300
9:17:55 Synchronizing Mailbox 'Jason Williams'
9:17:55 Done
9:17:57 Microsoft Exchange offline address book
9:17:57 Not downloading Offline address book files.  A server (URL) could not be located.
9:17:57 0X8004010F

or this

16:50:07 Synchronizer Version 12.0.6300
16:50:07 Synchronizing Mailbox 'Rosa Morales'
16:50:07 Synchronizing server changes in folder 'Drafts'
16:50:07 Downloading from server 'SATURN.hq.pcma.org'
16:50:07 The following message had an error and synchronization of it was skipped (0x80004005):
16:50:07 "Scanned document from RMorales (RMorales)"
16:50:07 Done

Any suggestions to what this is, im assuming its a Global Address error to AD?
