How to change .ConfigurationDomainController from the power shell - Exchnage 2007

It there a way to manually select the .ConfigurationDomainController from the powershell for Exchange 2007.  I selected the wrong DC in the Exchange MMC, and now the Exchange MMC does not function, or let me select a different one.  Can I manually set the DC to use in powershell?

This should work:

Connect-QADService -service 'server.company.com'

Try this:
Set-ExchangeServer -Identity 'SERVER01' -StaticConfigDomainController  "name"

OK.  I tried both of these, but when I open the Exchange 07 MMC it still give me the error.

The initial error shows:
Active Directory server mydc01.domain.local is not available.  Error message: A local error occured.  It was running command 'get-ExchangeAdministrator'

Then there is an error this error that shows:
Error:  Active Directory server mydc01.domain.local is not available.  Error message: A local error occured.
Same error as above.

perhaps my setup is broken, but here is the background,  The DC that is in the error message
mydc01.domain.local (this is not the real name) it my Main/Primary DC for the company.  It is a 2003 SBS box that used to also host exchange 03, before I migrated to Ex07.

My exchange 07 box, is also a domain & a catalog server.  When the Exchange MMC is set to itself for the config controller all works well.  When it is on the above (error) DC it fails.

Sometime when I reboot it can correct this problem, but not always.

So, I guess I need to manually tell my exchange 07 box to use itself as the config controller, but how.

Also, should I be concerned that the main DC (mydc01- above) does not work with exchange.

I migrated from exchange 03 back to this Ex 07 last winter, and it has been operating fine, it's just this issue with the manage consol.

Any advice would be grand!
