I have a new Exchange 2010 server and an Exchange 2003 server.

I have done the following, but still my public folders which were originally created on the 2003 server are not viewable on my 2010 server:

Gone to System Manager on 2003.
Navigated to the system folders in the FOLDERS folder in the Frist Administrative Group
Went to the first offline address book folder
Right clicked and said ALL TASKS, Manage Settings
In the Manage Public Folder Settings wizard, I chose to Modify the list of replica servers
Added the Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server to the new replica.

I waited 24 hours, but the public folders never replicated.

I tried to do this command...
•From the Exchange 2010 server: .\AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1 -server "Exchange 2010 Server" -TopPublicFolder "\" -ServerToAdd "Exchange 2010 Server"

But got the following error message:
The term '.\AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable
program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:30
+ .\AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1 <<<<  -server "exch2010" - TopPublicFolder "\" -ServerToAdd "exch2010"
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (.\AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

Just found the location for the ps1 was in the scripts folder.  Ran it and got the following error...

Ok, this is what I did to fix the issue...

I ran AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1 directly from the directory where it is located.
When asked for the TopFolder I typed in: \
When asked for the exchange server I typed in: exch2010

Waited and about 15 minutes later saw it on Exchange 2010.
