I am logged into our Exchange 2010 server. This is the only Exchange Server in the organization. We migrated from Exchange 2007. I am trying to create a Public Folder database. It  is giving me the error whether in the Console or the Shell. Not sure where to go from here.

this is typically a permissions issue
the account must have the "Database Role" management role assigned at a minimum
