Help with 5.5 to 2003 migration - 17.Aug.2005 1:20:00 PM

I am in the process of migrating 5.5 to 2003 and have problems.
I am receiving a system error in event viewer SRV Event ID: 2000
and in Ad when I right click on a user I get no exchange options but when I right click the AD users and Computers on the exchange 2003 server I have the exchange information.
I have joined the 2003 exchange server to the same site as 5.5 and they are in the same administrator group.
I can move mail boxes from the 5.5 to 2003 but then can not send internal email. I can receive internal and external and can send to external. When I go to the exchange 5.5 admin console and click on the 2003 server container recipients folder and user folder
I get an error about recalculation of directory hierarchy try again in a few minutes well it has been days.
I also get an MAPI error when I try and click on a mail connection.
"[Mad]" I am so frustrated and minimal exchange experience. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Start from basics make sure your foundations are solid. Is your ADC setup to sync one way or both ways?

1) Make sure all your domain controllers are syncing with each other without any error messages
2) Make sure your DNS enviroment is setup and configured correctly.

3) Install service Pack 1 for exchange server 2003.
4) Install latest version of ADC and setup to sync both ways.
5) Force ADC to sync and check event viewer to make sure it is cleanly syncing up whitout any error messages.

Hope this helps

First, some details on what SRV 2000 event ID says would help.
The next problem is easy, you only get the Exchange tabs in AD on a machine that has Exchange System Manager on it.
As for the rest, Like Sandip said above, some ADC info would help.
