I recently migrated few email account from exchange 2003 to 2010, but they are unable to see any calendar schedule for users that resides in 2010 or 2003 Exchange servers from Outlook 2010.  If a users switch to Outlook 2003 they are fine.

in AD site and services I check the autodiscover and I have my server listed there.  From the documentation I am not sure what else I need to do.  I do have PF created and I also assigned the PF to the Mailbox data base.  I am baffled.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Did you create a replica of the schedule+free busy folder?

I actually did.  In Exchange 2003 Management console I went to system folder.  SCHEDULE + FREE BUSY folder and I added  the 2010 public folder to the Exchange Administrate Group.  That did not a a thing for me.  

One more thing; I run Test E--mail AutoConfiguration from my desktop and it fails.  In the Log I see some stuff about Autodiscover for https, so I do know this is a valid test.  Anyway I thought I should mention it.

on your Exchange 2010 Box open EMC, then drill down to Organization Config / Mailbox then under Database management select the DB where your mailbox is located and go to its properties. Select the Client Settings tab and click Browse against Default Public Folder Database and select the Public Folder Database on your Exchange 2010 box.

I looked over the document.  You see I have a different situation.  If I use 2003 I CAN access the free/busy.  If I use 2010 then I can not.  Does not matter what exchange server I am on (although I am on Exchange 2010)

Sorry, at this stage I would start googling this which I am sure you have done yourself. I will keep monitoring the question.

Thanks.  It is for sure Autodiscover issue.  When I try to Autodiscover my exchange server, it does not work.  I have installed my certificate from my exchange 2003 on 2010 server.  Just in case you are interested, he is log:
