Moving from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010, Public Folders not replicating (error 80072030)

I'm installing Exchange Enterprise 2010 SP1 into a fresh environment (Windows server 2008 R2) alongside Exchange 2003. Installation went fine with no errors and the transfer of the user mailboxes is fine too. The only thing I cannot seem to do is replicate the Public Folders from E2003 to E2010, I get this message:

There is no such object on Server
LDAP Provider
80072030
Microsoft Exchange Service Manager

My organisation relies on Public Folder rather heavily and although I know MS are trying to move away from this model, we still need it to work for now. Any thoughts?

Maybe a simple approuch, but you can move the public folders from your old server to a PST and from the PST to the new public folders. Check the right before introducing these public folders to your company.

Hi dmeeren, I had thought of that too but I'm leaving that option as a last resort. Our Public Folders store is pretty huge (we've stretched far beyond the store size they're supposed to be) and moving it all to PST and back again would be an extremely time consuming job.

Perhaps this is the solution:

To resolve this issue, use the Active Directory Users and Computers management console to move the following security groups to the default Users container:

    Exchange Enterprise Servers
    Exchange Domain Servers
    Exchange Services

Hi rverdam, I had checked that the RUS was working (which it was). I managed to get the replication to start over the weekend and it seems to have completed but for some reason it cannot be seen in Outlook.

A support call has been logged with Microsoft's Exchange team; once I have the answer I shall post it here.

Ugh... OK, I have finally worked this out. I had Sophos PureMessage running on the Exchange 2003 server and as certain data (such as replication) is transmitted via email between two servers, for some reason PureMessage decided that these emails were bad and blocked them. The moment that I deinstalled PureMessage, the replication started.

Thanks to dmeeren & rverdam for posting!

Solution was due to something outside of MS Exchange which I had not mentioned in my original question.
