Moving Exchange 2007 OAB's after migration to Exchange 2010

Last Modified: 2012-10-30

I have migrated from exchange 2007 to exchange 2010 without any issues.
Now I am in the process of migrating from the temporary virtual server that I created, back to the physical hardware that the old exchange 2007 was runing on.
I have installed exchange 2010 on this box, and everything works fine.

I have moved all the roles and public folder replicas to the new server.

But I cant touch any of the OAB's on this server.

When i use the move command, I get a message about the object is  an older version (2007), and cant be managed by this version of exchange.

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:00

company OAB

Property LastTouchedTime can't be set on this object because it requires the object to have version 0.10 ( or later. The object's current version is 0.1 (8.0.535.0).

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
move-OfflineAddressBook -Identity '\company OAB' -Server 'server'

Elapsed Time: 00:00:00

How do I upgrade them, and why didnt this just happen with the initial move?
I have tried going in with ADSIedit.msc and changing the ExchangeVersion property to the correct version, which allows me to get past this error, BUT I then get a premission error.

Active Directory operation failed on server.domain.tld. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150BB9, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

The user has insufficient access rights.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
move-OfflineAddressBook -Identity '\company OAB' -Server 'server'

Elapsed Time: 00:00:01

I might mention that everything works fine for the users, there are about 200users and 12 OAB's
I need to move the OAB's so that I can delete the public folder on the other server, and uninstall it.

I'm not really familiar with changing access rights on OAB's, what commands could I look into etc. ?

Hope someone can help.
