Difficulties Moving Exchange 2010 Public Folder DB

I am moving a public folder store from  Exchange Server 1 to Exchange Server 2.  Exchange Server 1 is going away.  I completed the steps below, but when I try dismounting the Public Folder store on Exchange Server 1, I'm not able to access the public folders from Outlook clients on the network.  Is there more that I would need to do?

1.               Run:  Get-PublicFolder -Recurse | fl Name, Replicas
Verify that each public folder has both replicas listed.
2.      Retarget the replicas
.\Moveallreplicas.ps1 –server IPEXCH -newserver Exchange Server 2
3.      Force an update of the hierarchy on the new server.
Update-PublicFolderHierarchy -Server Exchange Server 2
4.      Verify the hierarchy has been moved:
Get-PublicFolder \ -Recurse | ft name,parentpath,replicas
5.      Double check the content on the new server:
Get-PublicFolderStatistics -server Exchange Server 1 -resultsize 1000
6.      Double check the content on new server.
Get-PublicFolderStatistics -server Exchange Server 2

That process is great for moving the information of the Public Folders DBs from one folder to another. But let's review some additional tips:

1. Did you update the Databases configuration to use the new Public Folder DB as default?
- Open Exchange management console
- Expand Organizacion Configuration
- Click Mailbox
- In the Database management Tab right click one of your DBs and select properties
- In the "Client Setting" Tab be aware that your new DB is listed in the box "Default Public folder Database"
- Check this parameter for all your DBs. If you have many of them it can be accomplished using Exchange Management Shell

2. Do you use a CAS Array (NLB)?
How are the CAS Array parameters
