I have just completed a server migration from a dell T105 to a T410. Everything seems to be going pretty well except the Exchange Store cannot be started. The error log had the following entries:

Error - MSExchange ADAccess - Event ID 2114 - Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGYSERVICE.EXE (PID=3004). Topology discovery failed, error 0x80040a02 (DSC_E_NO_SUITABLE_CDC). Look up the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) error code specified in the event description. To do this, use Microsoft Knowledge Base article 218185, "Microsoft LDAP Error Codes." Use the information in that article to learn more about the cause and resolution to this error. Use the Ping or PathPing command-line tools to test network connectivity to local domain controllers.

Information - MSExchange ADAccess - Event ID 2080 - "Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGYSERVICE.EXE (PID=3004). Exchange Active Directory Provider has discovered the following servers with the following characteristics:
 (Server name | Roles | Enabled | Reachability | Synchronized | GC capable | PDC | SACL right | Critical Data | Netlogon | OS Version)
In-site: pserver.dom01.local      CDG 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0
Out-of-site:  "

I reached this point by running a restore from my ShadowCraft backup and running a hardware independent restore. All of the drivers are loaded, there are no errors in device manager. The new server has dual quad core processors and 32gb of ram. The previous server (in place currently) only has 8gb of ram w/ a single quad core processor. The restore ran without any errors (that I could see).

I have very little experience with Exchange. Can anyone shed some light on what could be causing this?

Like I listed in the original post. I did a full restore from backup from the old server to the new server.

The solution was to reconfigure the NIC with the same settings as the previous server. This solved the problem.
