Exchange 2007 and AD Sites

Recently migrated from Exch2003 to 2007 and followed Microsoft's instructions and everything seemed to go well. I have removed the 2003 server and now when opening a Outlook 2007 for the first time it tries to connect to the old server. I have also noticed that the new server doesn't appear in Active Directory sites list. I would think it should. Also the Exchange Management Console takes a long time to load and eventually asks me to end the snap in.

Hi
Exchange Server 2007 is not an Active Directory, so it will not appear in ADSS
Only Server that hold the AD ( Directory Server - Domain Controller) appear in ADSS
tell me
how many DC You have and what about the subnet
are all in the same subnet
in Exchange server run NSlookup
are you able to get the server name, did you configure WINS

what about outlook, if you have several DC, then You may wait for replication or simply force the replkication, also this will work for exchange

tell me about your network

I have 2 DC both are global catalog with one in each site on different subnets.
I have one exchange 2007 server std.
I can resolve the exchange 2007 server name in using nslookup from all sites, servers, and workstations.

this seem to be a replication problem as the Schema changes has been not replicated to the other server so when the client read its information to find the mailbox location they are getting an old NOT up2date result
Did you try to force the replication
tell me are the  servers are additional or child to a parent

Ok so this problem was of my own doing.

When we purchased Office 2007 I created an unattended installation file and it was configured to force Outlook to use the old email server for Exchange. Totally forgot I did that. So I updated the MSP file and reloaded it on my machine and that took care of it.

housammuhanna - you did answer my question about Exchange and Active Directory sites and services so thank you.
