Exchange 2003/2007 Public Folder Replication/Move Issues - SBS 2003 to 2008 Migration

I am attempting to move all public folders from an SBS 2003 server to a new SBS 2008 server. In ESM on the 2k3 machine I simply right click on the public folder icon and choose "Move all Replicas" but no folders ever move. I have set the replication schedule to defaults, to 1 minute, etc. and waited for replication to occur with no luck.

There are no apparent SMTP issues between the two machines, no smarthost on the 2k3 SBS machine, no connection limitations, etc.. The SMTP queue shows empty between the two server connectors (and all other queues) as well. I've scanned the event log as well and am not seeing anything. I can telnet to port 25 from each host to the other.

Thank you!

Also, when using MoveAllReplicas.ps1 in Powershell, I receive the following:

Get-PublicFolder : There is no existing PublicFolder that matches the following
 Identity: '\'. Please make sure that you specified the correct PublicFolder Id
entity and that you have the necessary permissions to view PublicFolder.
At line:1 char:17
+ get-publicfolder  <<<< -identity \ -Recurse -resultsize unlimited
Get-PublicFolder : There is no existing PublicFolder that matches the following
 Identity: '\NON_IPM_SUBTREE'. Please make sure that you specified the correct
PublicFolder Identity and that you have the necessary permissions to view Publi
cFolder.

This issue was solved by setting proper security inheritance on the 2k3 server configuration object in the 2k3 ESM.

The Exchange 2007 best practice analyzer found my trouble configuration object.
