System Attendant does not want to seem to start. All dependencies are running.  
It seems like it cannot connect to a GC or DC based on the errors. Can ping the GC server without anny issues.

How can I manually change the GC the exchange 2003 server looks to via the registry. There are lots of GC's in the network and I want to point it to one specifically.

Here are some event viewer errors. Also when I try to click on the server is ESM the program hangs.
