Exchange 2010 OAB Issues in Coexistance mode

Hello,
I've recently setup a new Exchange 2010 server, moving fro ma 2003 environment.  I have mailboxes on both servers and are currently slowly migrating mailboxes.

With that, I have ran into an issue with the Offline Address Book.  Any user who is on the new server is unable to update the OAB - we get  'The operation failed. An object could not be found' along with the a generic error code 0x8004010F.  

From what I've read, we need to keep the address book on the EX03 box until all mailboxes are moved.  I have not created an OAB on the new 2010 server.  BUT!  If I open my address book properties in outlook (2010), it is in fact pointing to the new server.

So the, question, how can I point my users on the new 2010 server to my 2003 server?  Or can I create a second OAB on the 2010 server and point the clients to that?

Cheers
JJ

Ohh and I can confirm that in the EMC on the 2010 server, it shows my 2003 server as owning the OAB and it being the default.

Welp, I'm an idiot, the EX2010 databases did not have the OAB properly set.
