BES problem after changing domain controller on Exchange 2010

Hello, I've been having problems with my BES server (5.03) since I changed the Domain Controller on the exchange EMC.

I changed the selection from Use default Domain Controller to Specifty a Domain Controller and since then the BlackBerry devices activated in the BES can't connect to the server.

Could this change in domain controller be the cause of the BES not working?

If so, any possible fix for this problem?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Why did you specify the domain controller? That isn't a recommended solution.
However it shouldn't affect the BES operation. Did you restart the BES services after making the change?

Yeah, I did and it still not working. I changed because I didn't know what was the "Default Domain Controller" and I wanted to be sure that it was not a specific DC that will be demoted  soon.

I changed back to use default DC but still nothing.

Firstly why are you making Exchange look to a specific DC ?
Hope no issue between the BES server and this DC ?

Recreate the BES profile to begin with.

Because I wanted to make sure that Exchange was not using a DC that will be demoted soon.

Found the problem, I had to change the homeMTA setting of the BESAdmin user on ADSIedit.
