Public Folders not showing up in Exchange 2013 after migration from Exchange 2010

I have gone through the migration steps for Public Folders from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013 according to the article:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj150486(v=exchg.150).aspx
I got through step 7.  Get-PublicFolderMigrationRequest returned a status of autosuspended. In step 8 I ran Set-Mailbox -Identity Test01 -DefaultPublicFolderMailbox Mailbox1.  I was then able to see and modify the Public Folders when logged on to Outlook as test01.  I then completed the steps for step 8.  However I can see no Public Folders in the ECP and Get-PublicFolder returns no Public Folders on Exchange 2013.  When I try to rerun New-PublicFolderMigrationRequest it won't let me because it say it has already been run.  When I run Get-Mailbox -PublicFolder | Set-Mailbox -PublicFolder -IsExcludedFromServingHierarchy $false it says no changes were made.  I seem to be dead in the water.

Now I realize that I can't see Public Folders at all.  Do I ran the roll back:

Set-OrganizationConfig -PublicFoldersLockedForMigration:$False

2.On the Exchange 2013 server, run the following command to delete the public folder mailboxes.

Get-Mailbox -PublicFolder | Where{$_.IsRootPublicFolderMailbox -eq $false} | Remove-Mailbox -PublicFolder -Force -Confirm:$false
Get-Mailbox -PublicFolder | Remove-Mailbox -PublicFolder -Force -Confirm:$false

3.On the legacy Exchange server, run the following command to set the PublicFolderMigrationComplete flag to $false.

Set-OrganizationConfig -PublicFolderMigrationComplete:$False

But don't see anything yet.  The folders are not real big......

That did the trick.  Not sure what I did different but the first article above is excellent, much better than the TechNet one.  Thanks.
