Step 1: Replicating Exchange 2003 PF's to Exchange 2010

Add the Exchange 2010 server as PF replica partner for the Exchange 2003 server PF's:

    From the Exchange 2010 server: .\AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1 -server "Exchange 2010 Server" -TopPublicFolder "\" -ServerToAdd "Exchange 2010 Server"

If you are planning to have multiple Exchange 2010 PF servers, you can repeat the Cmdlet above to all of them.

Replicate the Exchange 2003 Public Folder hierarchy and content to Exchange 2010 server using ESM (Exchange 2003 System Manager), and then (if you have multiple Exchange 2010 PF servers), replicate the Public Folder hierarchy and content from the Exchange 2010:

    From the Exchange 2010 server: Update-PublicFolderHierarchy -Server "Exchange 2010 Server"

Step 2: Moving Exchange 2003 PF's to Exchange 2010

As a last step, after you confirmed that all the PF have been replicated to the Exchange 2010, you can move all replicas from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. The "move all replicas" will actually remove the Exchange 2003 replicas.

To move all Exchange 2003 replicas to Exchange 2010, which will actually remove the Exchange 2003 replicas:

    From the Exchange 2010 server: .\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server "Exchange 2003 Server" -NewServer "Exchange 2010 Server"

 Additional Cmdlets

    To view a list of the replicas in the public folder hierarchy: Get-PublicFolder -recurse |fl name,replicas
    For System Folders: Get-PublicFolder -recurse \non_ipm_subtree |fl name, replicas
    To compare content replicated between the source and destination servers: Get-PublicFolderStatistics
