Exchange 2003 migration to 2010

All,

We are in the process of moving our users mailboxes off of our 2003 servers and on to 2010 servers.  One of the admins here did the moves from the old 2003 ESM and not the 2010 Manager.  The user is showing up as being housed on the 2010 server, but he is still listed in the EMC as a legacy mailbox, and when he accesses OWA it is still showing the 2003 OWA interface.  What do I need to do to make sure this guy is setup correctly on 2010.  He is still able to send and receive mail.

Silly question but you have refreshed the console?
What about under Move Requests is it listed under there?  Maybe it hasnt moved yet?

I have refreshed.  There is no move request pending or otherwise, as the move was done from the 2003 Exchange console.  I am unsure if I should move him again or what.  His AD information says he is on the 2010 server, but he obviously is not, otherwise he would not be getting the 2003 OWA interface.

Ahh, it needs to be done from the 2010 console not the 2003 one.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Right, But it wasn't, and now it's in some kind of limbo.  AD thinks his mailbox is on the Exchange 2010 sever, and the 2010 server thinks the mailbox is still on 2003.

There's an easier way. Run the following powershell command on Exchange2010

Set-Mailbox "mailboxname" -ApplyMandatoryProperties

This will mark the mailbox as a 2010 mailbox and everthing should start working properly.
