Exchange 2010 trying to Move Offline Address Book

Phase2 used Ask the Experts™
When we we try to move the offline address book over to the new exchange farm from the old one, we are getting an error:

Active Directory operation failed on AD1.domain.local. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150A48, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

The user has insufficient access rights.

Echange Management Shell command attempted:
move-OfflineAddressBook -Identity "\xxxxxx OAB' -Server 'xchange' Move OAB error
We have dug around a lot, any thoughts?

You can use the Exchange Management Console to perform this task.

    In the Console tree, click Toolbox.
    In the Result pane, double-click Public Folder Management Console. The Public Folder Management Console appears.
    In the public folder tree, click or expand Default Public Folders, and then select the parent public folder of the public folder that you want to move to Exchange 2010. Note: To configure replication for the offline address book (OAB) or for Schedule+ free/ busy information, expand System Public Folders, and then click OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK or SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY.
    In the Result pane, right-click the public folder you want to replicate to Exchange 2010 and select Properties.
    On the Replication tab, click Add to select an Exchange 2010 public folder database and then click OK.
    By default, Exchange uses the replication schedule configured for the public folder database. To create a custom replication schedule for the public folder, clear the Use public folder database replication schedule check box and select one of the settings in the list.
    To create a customized schedule, click Customize.
    To set the schedule, click the time grid in the Schedule dialog box. Public folder replication will run during the time slots that you specify.
    Click OK to close the Schedule dialog box.
    To specify the age limit for items in this public folder, type the number of days in the Local replica age limit (days) box. Items that have reached the age limit are deleted.
