We are in the processing of phasing out an old DC that is on its last leg, I have configured the new DC and made it the Operation Master for everything and made it the Schema Master. It is also a Global Catalog Server. Unfortunately I cannot get my Exchange 2007 server to stop looking at the old server. How do I get Exchange to stop looking at the old global catalog server and look at the new one? The new server is Server 2008.

As long as you set the new server as a global catalog as well then your fine.  Once the old machine gets demoted it will look at the new machine for GC requests

once the new DC is alive and the old once is demoted all you need to do is either reset the exchange services or reset the servers if that still dont work.

this will bind exchange with the new GC
