How to sync an existing Core Data store with iCloud?

Over the past week, I've been trying to get iCloud to work with one of my applications, which needs to migrate to an existing local Core Data store to a ubiquitous store (if the user requests it). This is what I'm using but it's not working consistently:
(NSPersistentStoreCoordinator *)persistentStoreCoordinator {
if (persistentStoreCoordinator != nil)
return persistentStoreCoordinator;

NSURL *legacyStoreUrl = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:[[self applicationDocumentsDirectory] stringByAppendingPathComponent:[self activeStoreFilenameUpgraded:NO]]];
NSURL *upgradedStoreUrl = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:[[self applicationDocumentsDirectory] stringByAppendingPathComponent:[self activeStoreFilenameUpgraded:YES]]];

persistentStoreCoordinator = [[NSPersistentStoreCoordinator alloc] initWithManagedObjectModel:[self managedObjectModel]];

if ((IOS_VERSION_GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO(@"5.0")) && (self.iCloudEnabled)) {
NSPersistentStoreCoordinator* psc = persistentStoreCoordinator;

NSFileManager *fileManager = [NSFileManager defaultManager];

NSDictionary *cloudOptions = nil;
NSDictionary *localOptions = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:
[NSNumber numberWithBool:YES], NSMigratePersistentStoresAutomaticallyOption,
[NSNumber numberWithBool:YES], NSInferMappingModelAutomaticallyOption,
nil];

NSURL *cloudURL = [fileManager URLForUbiquityContainerIdentifier:@""];
NSString *coreDataCloudContent = [[cloudURL path] stringByAppendingPathComponent:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"logs%d",[self activeStoreIndex]]];
if ([coreDataCloudContent length] != 0) {
// iCloud is available
cloudURL = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:coreDataCloudContent];

cloudOptions = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:
[NSNumber numberWithBool:YES], NSMigratePersistentStoresAutomaticallyOption,
[NSNumber numberWithBool:YES], NSInferMappingModelAutomaticallyOption,
@"MyAppStore", NSPersistentStoreUbiquitousContentNameKey,
cloudURL, NSPersistentStoreUbiquitousContentURLKey,
nil];
} else {
// iCloud is not available
}

NSError *error = nil;
[psc lock];
if(migrateStore) {
migrateStore = NO;

NSPersistentStore *srcPS = [psc addPersistentStoreWithType:NSSQLiteStoreType
configuration:nil
URL:legacyStoreUrl
options:localOptions
error:&error];
if (![psc migratePersistentStore:srcPS
toURL:upgradedStoreUrl
options:cloudOptions
withType:NSSQLiteStoreType
error:&error]) {
NSLog(@"Error migrating data: %@, %@ / %@ / %@", error, [error userInfo], legacyStoreUrl, upgradedStoreUrl);
abort();
}
}
else {
if (![psc addPersistentStoreWithType:NSSQLiteStoreType
configuration:nil
URL:upgradedStoreUrl
options:(cloudOptions ? cloudOptions : localOptions)
error:&error]) {
NSLog(@"Unresolved iCloud error %@, %@", error, [error userInfo]);
abort();
}
}
[psc unlock];

[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] postNotificationName:@"RefetchAllDatabaseData" object:self userInfo:nil];
} else {
NSDictionary *options = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:
[NSNumber numberWithBool:YES], NSMigratePersistentStoresAutomaticallyOption,
[NSNumber numberWithBool:YES], NSInferMappingModelAutomaticallyOption,
nil];

NSError *error = nil;
if (![persistentStoreCoordinator addPersistentStoreWithType:NSSQLiteStoreType configuration:nil URL:legacyStoreUrl options:options error:&error]) {
// error
abort();
}
}

return persistentStoreCoordinator;
Any ideas?
