Exchange 2010 transition - error in management shell

Hi,

I'm trying to transition from exchange 2003 to 2010.
Have installed a new server running Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010
Have installed the following roles:
Client access server
Mailbox server
Hub transport server

Everything installed just fine.  No errors or problems.

When I run exchange management shell I get the following error:
"processing data from remote server failed with the following error: user domain\administrator isn't assigned to any management roles. For more info see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting help topic."

Gives a reference to PSRemotingTransportException
PSSessionOpenFailed.

"Please enter the FQDN of where you want to connect"

Its the local machine I am connecting to.  Its the first Exchange 2010 server.
Was going to run the Get-ExchangeServer comdlet to see everything was ok, evidently not.

How do I assign management roles?

Check and add the user/administrator to the Organization Management group @ Microsoft Exchange Security Groups OU

Thanks aravind.
That got me through that stage but there's still an error in the EMC.

Failed to initialize.

The following error occured when getting information for the user domain\administrator

The operation couldnt be performed because the user domain\administrator couldnt be found on 'exchange2003svr'.  It was running the command Get-LogonUser.

Cant complete the installation still.

Cant create mailbox databases.
Error
Active directory operation failed on [exchange2003server].  This error is not retriable.  Additional Information: the name reference is invalid.
This may be caused by replication latency between AD domain controllers.

A value in the request is invalid.

Exchange management shell command attempted:
new-mailboxdatabase -Server 'servername' -Name 'mailboxDB name' -EdbFilePath 'path'

Any ideas there?
