Exchange 2010 cannot connect to DC

I had an issue with my Exchange 2010 server.  I had to remove it from the domain and re-add it. Something is broke.  My exchange services are not starting and EMC cannot connect to DC.  All other Exchange functionality is being run on a 2007 box.  I had only migrated one test user over to the new 2010 box.  Here is the error that I get when I try to connect to DC in EMC:

It was the Primary DNS field in the default domain GPO.  Someone, not sure who, went in and enabled that field but left it blank! Ugh

Make sure your user id is added to "Organization Managment " group .

Also post the critical event on the server to analyze this issue further.

I think it is a DNS issue.  I get this when trying to install Exchange SP1:

setup cannot verify that the Host (A) record for this computer exists in the DNS database....but the record is there.

Please make sure the DNS configuration is right, and your Exchange Server can connect to the DC well.

Also if possible try to rejoin your Exchange server to DC ?

Please post me event viewer details.
