Exchange 2003 & 5.5 mixed SRS issue ADC

I have some accounts in exchange 5.5 system administrator pointing to an old 5.5 server and ESM pointing to the new 2003 cluster server (were it really is) I have a question for you that has me stumped... I have a mixed mode site/organization with 5 exchange 5.5 servers and 2 Ex2k3 servers. One of the Exchg2k3 servers is a cluster so I needed to setup a non-clustered server to carry the SRS for the site since cluster does not support that. Anyhow everything was working fine after migrating a few accounts and testing but... I had an shutdown on the EX-SRS server and now the Exchange Administrator 5.5 says that the migrated accounts still showing on the old server but when I look at the Active directory attributes the accounts show in the new cluster Exchange server. Another thing that I noticed in the EX-SRS is that I cannot use Exchange Administrator 5.5 because it says it is still replicating but I've waited a day already. I also noticed that on ADC the Agreements look greyed out.. they seem to be working since I did the administrative note test between server and they did replicate. I'm also having distribution issues from the outside, some people are not getting the emails ... Any ideas???

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sounds to me like the 5.5 servers are not replicating properly.The SRS acts like a pseudo 5.5 Exchange dir.edb that can communicate via the ADC with Active
Directory. If you do an admin dump of the user in 5.5 and an LDP dump of the same user from AD, do all the attributes match? In particular look at homemdb, homemta, and proxy address. To do an admin dump in 5.5, go into 5.5 Admin in raw mode. This can be done by typing admin -r from a command prompt in the directory where the Exchange Administrator program resides.

Also verify that your configuration agreements are set to two-way and not one-way.
