AD can't see users

I had 2 servers.  One Windows 2003 and one windows 2008 rs.  The windows 2003 server was managing users.  I thought I proceeded correctly to remove it from the network.
In the remaining server (windows 2008 r2) I can not see any users in Active Directory users and computers, but I can see them when I list users in the Powershell.
I am getting script errors and some denied access to network shares.

How can I import my users in the Admin Tools > Active Directory > Users and Computers so that I can edit them?

What steps did you take to remove the Windows 2003 server?
Did you promote the Windows 2008 server to become a domain controller?
Did you run ADPREP before you promoted the 2008 server?
Did you raise your Forest and/or Domain Functional Levels (or need to)?
Did you transfer the FSMO roles to the 2008 server?
Did you setup DNS properly?
Did you ensure a clean replication before you removed the 2003 server?
What are the results you get when you run DCDIAG on the 2008 server?
