I am trying to migrate to Exchange 2010.  All my users mailboxes have been moved, and I'm now down to the public folders.

When I look on the 2007 server, under server configuration / public folder database, properties, it says that it is replicating.

When I go to the Exchange 2010 server and issue the recurse command, I see my hierarchy.

I've switched all the databases on the 2010 server so that they point to the Public Folder database on that server.

However, when I dismount the store, and try to get to the public folders from an Outlook client, I get a message that they aren't available.  As soon as I remount the store, I can get into them.  So, obviously the clients are still looking to Exchange 2007.

I haven't been able to find very good documentation on how to properly migrate.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
