Shared Mailboxes Dismount during Exchange 2007 to 2010 migration

I just started an Exchange 2007 to 2010 Migration.  We are going to go the route of coexisting using the legacy namespaces until we are completed.

Up to this point I have not migrated any mailboxes off the 2007.  We have many Shared Mailboxes (still on 2007), and for some reason many of the shared mailboxes are now disconnected.

How do I reconnect these mailboxes?

Thank You!

Remove and add the shared mailbox back is the only solution.

This is a problem that goes back to Exchange 2003 days. Outlook only updates the primary mailbox to the new location, it doesn't look at any others.

If you move the shared mailbox at the same time, so both the primary and shared mailbox are moved to the new server, then it will stay connected.
