Public Folder Replica's Move - Ex 2003 to Ex 2010

Decommissioning the last of my Exchange 2003 servers, and I am trying to move my Public Folders Replication, and I do not believe it is moving (or I may just be imaptient)

Anyway, I've tried to do this two ways.  First in the EMC of the 2003 server, right-clicking on the public folders, and choosing "Move Replicas" and choosing to move to my EX10 database.

I've also attempted to do this on my 2010 server, using PS script ./MoveAllReplicas.ps1

I don't seem to be getting errors on either, but it's been hours and I still have my same 8 items listed in the "Public Folder Instances" on the 2003 box.  I am unable to remove the folders until this the replicas are moved.  Odd thing, of the 8 instances, 6 have a size of 0, one with a size of 1KB and 1 with a size of 601KB.  

That shouldn't take hours to move, I would think.   Is there any way to tell if these are moving?

Please check the public folder database on Exchange 2003 and take a look at the replication schedule. Ensure it has a regular interval to run (such as 15 minutes) to ensure that it will attempt to replicate with Exchange 2010.

Also, please take a look at the event log on the Exchange 2003 and 2010 server to see if there are any events concerning public folders or the Exchange store mentioning public folder replication messages (I've seen issues where public folder replication messages are not properly being processed and event logs show up on the 2010 side) .

OK, replication was set to 15 minutes.  

Error wise, on the 2010, I'm getting a bunch of errors like the following (note, I've replaced my domain wiht xxxx):

Process Microsoft.Exchange.AddressBook.Service.exe (PID=144). Object CN=All Rooms,CN=All Address Lists,CN=Address Lists Container,CN=Hobbitan,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=xxxx,DC=com read from TEMPDC.xxxx.com failed validation. Attribute: ExchangeLegacyDN. Error message: You must provide a value for this property.. Invalid data: .

Interestingly, now the one instance that  was at 600KB is now zero.  I now only have two instances that have any size(I was incorrect before, 3 had a size not 2).
