Exchange Public Folder Migration

We are in the process of migrating from Exchange 2003 to 2010. I have already set up 2 servers that have the hub/cas role on them and one mailbox server. I am now trying to replicate the 2003 Public Folder structure to the Exchange 2010 Server. From EMS I am running:

Get-publicfolder -recurse | fl name,replicas

Which gives me:
Name     : IPM_SUBTREE
Replicas : {}

I then run: cd $exscripts and then
.\AddReplicatoPFRecursive.ps1 -TopPublicFolder "\" -ServerToAdd MBX-01

The command completes without errors, but when I run get-publicfolder -recurse | fl name,replicas I get the same result as before. I also tried running Update-PublicFolderHierarchy -Server "MBX-01"

The same thing happens when I try to replicate the non_ipm_subtree.

Is this the intended result? I thought I should see the folders after running this cmdlet with the new public folder database listed in "Replicas".

If its E2k3 i guess we can try to use PFDavAdmin as well to add the new server as replica.
Is the PF store mounted and you are able to access some details via PFconsole ?
Also all Microsoft Exchange services should be started :)

Here is the results of the cmdlts that I have run. As you will see, the new database "MLK Public Folder Database" does not appear as a replica for root of non_ipm_subtree, eforms registry, or offline address book. It also does not appear as a replica for the root of ipm_subtree and I do not see all the other public folders that we have (maybe 50) even though I used the -recurse switch.

Did you try to run the command i gave ?
Did you give sometime for replication and then check ?

Yes. That is the same command that I ran since last night. I ran again today, but I'm getting the same result.
