Exchange 2010 migration to site within same domain issues

Experts,

I have an exchange 2010 HT/CAS server and a mailbox server on my domain. Also within my domain we have a site where servers are hosted in the cloud. I want to migrate to a 2010 HT/CAS server and MB server at this cloud site. I also have a DC at the cloud site than can see and replicate to my DC at the local site.

So far it seems like EMC recognizes the servers at the cloud site but I can't move a mailbox over there because exchange doesn't see a HT server at the site. I can ping, browse, access via EMC etc. If I run Exchange BPA it errors with this:

 No Hub Transport server role is detected in Active Directory site 'cloudsite' though at least one Mailbox server role is installed in this site. Mail flow, Transport Rules and Journaling Policies will not be available until a Hub Transport role is installed.

So my other server at the cloud site and local site get this error. Is it possible the server at the cloud site wasn't set up correctly? Also the cloud site servers are 2010 SP2 while the local are still 2010 SP1.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

You have a Single server in cloud site with all the default server roles( Mailbox, client Access and Hub Transport) installed together?

from your first site, if you type the below shell command, is that all server roles displaying?

Get-ExchangeServer "Cloud site exchange server name"

Wow not alot of help Experts!

I ended up resolving the issue by changing the msExchServerSite attribute in ADSIEDIT. Initially after a reboot the server still points to the incorrect site. I then had to hard code the entry by editing the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Netlogon\Parameters "SiteName" key to my remote site and the changes stuck.

MODS you can close this one.
