Exchange 2010 Installation - Mail Flow Settings. 2008 R2 Domain

considerscs used Ask the Experts™
I am installing Exchange Server 2001 w/ SP1 and am getting hung up at the mail flow settings step. I do not have a 2003 domain controller anymore and it is wanting me to point to it.
We migrated from a Serve 2003 SBS to Server 2008 R2 last week. The SBS server included exchange built in but we never really used it.

If I click browse at the mail flow settings step it shows the name of the old domain server.

How can we get past this step so that it doesn't ask for mail flow settings. It sounds like there is still settings left somewhere that show we have a 2003 Exchange server.

Under ASDI Edit I do not have  configuration - services - exchange server. I only see ADSI Edit -> Default naming context[Server Name] -> DC=Domain , DC = local.

I do see a CN = Microsoft Exchange System Objects

See attached screenshot.


I removed that CN = Microsoft Exchange System Objects and still get same problem.

Any more ideas?
Problem solved. Used Rossmcc suggestion and found the configuration settings by doing the following:
Right Click ADSI Edit -> New Connection
At the connection settings box:
Select "Configuration" in "Select a well known Naming Context" drop down box.
Click Ok


Needed this step to complete.
