Exchange 2003 DSAccess can't use 2008 DC/GC

I have 2 domain controllers in the same physical location as my Exchange server and all in the same AD site.  The Exchange server is automatically configured for DSAccess and is using the 2003 server.  I didn't know why it doesn't show the 2008 server so I added manually for redundancy.  However, when running ExBPA, it says it can't use that server because it's not functional.

I have looked at the 2008 server and AD appears fine.  It is configured as a GC and I verified the gc srv dns records are present.  Why else would it not work?

Apparently so.  Just found a message in the application log saying DSAccess found the following servers and the 2008 server is listed; ExBPA no longer shows that error.  Very strange.

That guy said "Was missing manage auditing and security rights."  Where?  A configuration change on the Exchange server or the DC?  Too vague; I don't know what it is referring to.

This DC is not R2.

This is interesting...even though it shows that error, the categorizer is using the 2008 DC for LDAP.
All of a sudden Exchange discovered the 2008 DC.  whatever...
