I just added exchange 2010 hub transport/CAS and a mailbox server to my AD 2003/Exchange 2003 domain. All seems pretty good, except when I try to add a new user in active directory users and computers and get to the create mailbox selection, I see my old server and my two new server, but the dropdown for the mailbox store is blank for the two new servers, the old one has dropdowns for it's stores.

Mailbox flows work fine and I can use Outlook and OWA to connect to mailboxes on the new servers so the stores are up and mounted and working fine.

Thanks, Miles

You need to use the Exchange Management Console to create your new mail-enabled users.

Active Directory Users and Computers is no longer used for mailbox management.
