In Exchange System Manager, expand Servers, right-click your Exchange server and then click Properties.

Click the Directory Access tab.

In Show, select Global Catalog Servers.

Check the Automatically discover servers check box

Yes the NIC has new DNS addresses.
Automatically Discover Servers check box is checked and I can see both the new DC and GC are in the list there. There is no entry of old DC/GC.
Still I get following errros in application event logs,
