Public Folder replication issues with E2K7 to E2K10

Hey all,

I recently added a E2K10 server to our domain and I'm in the process of migrating from E2K7 to E2K20.  I first moved my mailbox in case there are any issues.

Lets call the 2 servers E2K7 and E2K10.

I created a new PF database on the new E2K10 server. It seems that the Public Folder Hierarchy replicates between the 2 servers, but the content inside the folders do not?

When I have Mailbox Database on the E2K10 server pointed to E2K7 default public folder database, PF's work just fine on my mailbox.  However, when I change the default public folder database to the new database on the E2K10 server, I get "Cannot expand the folder. Microsoft Exchange is not available".

I have run the cmdlet "Get-PublicFolder \ -Recurse" on both servers and both show the correct hierarachy.

Does anyone know where to start on this issue?

Hopefully this makes sense.

Thank you,
Don Hess, MCP, A+
