Exchange 2010 stop after decommission the old domain controllers.

Dear All,

I have Exchange 2010 installed in my environment, also, I have active directory windows 2008 R2.
I bring a new two servers, I make them as additional domain controllers, then I transfer the FSMO roles to them.
I decommission the old domain controllers.
Now, the exchange server stop, it’s not working.
I restart the exchange server but it’s the same.
Is there a related point which I have to change in exchange????

Please help

Thanks

1. Check if the Exchange server DNS settings is still pointing to old DC

2. Change the configuration Domain Controller for Exchange to the new DC.
You can do this in Exchange Management Console


Use the Configuration Domain Controller dialog box to specify a domain controller to use to read and write to Active Directory if you modify any server or organization configuration.

To change the configuration domain controller click Organization Configuration, and then, in the action pane, click Modify Configuration Domain Controller.

Use a default domain controller

    Click this button to use the default domain controller. The default domain controller is the domain controller to which the computer is currently connected.

Domain

    If you want to specify a domain controller instead of using a default one, click Browse to open the Select Domain dialog box. Use this dialog box to select a domain in your Active Directory forest. You must select a domain before you can select a domain controller.

Configuration domain controller

    This field isn't made available until you've specified a domain.

    Click Browse to open the Select Domain Controller dialog box. Use this dialog box to select the domain controller you want to use when modifying server or organization configuration.
