Unable to access public folder in 2010 OWA

I am not able to see public folder in OWA.  I am not sure at one point this stopped working.  I can see the public folder if I use Outlook 2003 and 2010.  Any idea what I need to do and where do I start focusing.

The default public folder database has to be changed to the replica on the Exchange 2010 server for all 2010 mailboxes (mailbox database properties / tab "Client Settings"). Then the Exchange 2010 web service can be used to access the public folder items.

This is all set.  All of the mailboxes point to correct public folder.  When I was testing few weeks ago this was working fine but I get this wired error message now:
" The Public folder you are trying to access could not be found.  IF the problem continues, contact helpdesk and tell them the following:  The public folder couldn't be found because there is no Exchange 2010 public folder server".
 I found this link but I am not sure how accurate it is:

I don't have an answer, but did you try the suggestion given in the linked blog entry?  Or are you wondering how safe it is to attempt the change?

I would try putting in the default value of 300KB, in case there is some corrupt value in AD that the GUI is not able to display.

You check it using ADSI Edit (a free MS download from somewhere - very useful).  I can't remember where you'll find the value you're looking for, but it will be in the Configuration node.  Look for something like Services/Exchange/Administration Groups/(group name)/Servers/(your E2003 server name)/Information Stores/Public Folders (this is from memory, I hope it's at least a little use in guiding you down the correct path).  When you find the E2003 Public Folder store, look at the properties, and you should find msExchOwningPFTree listed somewhere.
