I have some test servers including 4 DC's (Windows 2003 SP2) - Domain & Forest Functional Level - Server 2003.  I have one Windows 2003 SP2 Server with Exchange Server 2003 and I added the first Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Standard with Exchange 2010 SP1.  Everything went fine in the installation, but after I noticed that each server can see the other server but they can not see the database on the other server.  Can anyone please give me some idea of what I should be looking for?  Thank you!

I also checked the log files and this is one of the error messages that I received:

The following appeared a few minutes later.

Also after that I received the following messages:

I was even able to create a new user on the new Exchange 2010 server and then send and receive emails from that user to users on the other server.  My problem is that when I try to migrate users, it shows the name of the server but not the database, so I can't complete that task.

You can only see 2010 databases in the management console because the database are no longer server objects but rather organizational objects (all earlier versions of Exchange a database was part of a storage group that belonged to a server)

In the 2010 management console under Recipient Management, when you perform a New Local Move Request you will see all databases

This is expected
