Exchange/Active Directory Replication issue

I recently added a server 2008 to my AD and transferred all roles over to that new server. the thought was to migrate over to all server 2008. Everything seemed to be working ok. I have the 2008 server running as a DNS and I changed DHCP to hand out the new 08 server as its primary DNS. All of that seems to be working ok. My problem is that I am migrating from an Exchange 2003 to an Exchange 2010 server. I am almost complete and moved over a single mail box to the new exchange server. I am able to connect to my OWA with my login/password but outlook will not connect. It keeps asking for a password. I thought it may be a replication error on this domain controller so I tried to force a replication and received the following error:

The Following error occurred during the attempt to contact the Domain Controller File01: Access Denied.

File01 is the 08 server... I can replicate from my other DC's though just not from this primary.

I assume firewall is disable. Download PortQuery GUI tool and check the connection between both DC's.  If you see and error ending with code 02 that means connection issue.

Why don't you try this, recycle DC servers and then Exchange server. Check again. Also add new dc in dns properties on exchange server. I assume you are using ad integrated dns.

The new exchange server already has the new DC as its primary DNS server. I am rebooting the exchange server now

After reboot, goto cmd and run set l and check which dc it is logged in.

It is not issue with DC it is with Exchange, it might not discovered the new dc, after reboot topology service discovered it.
