Exchange 2010 on WIndows 2008 R2 will not start unless old server is booted.

We migrated to Windows 2008 R2 server and Exchange 2010. All Outlook client are connected to 2010 server and functioning. New 2008 R2 server is Global Catalog server and all FSMO rolls have been transferred. If we down old server and reboot new server Exchange Information Store  service (and a few others Exchanges services) will loop on starting and stopping. As soon as we boot old server the Exchange Information Store service starts and all works. At some point in the future we will demote old server. My concern is if old server fails  or I demote it will my Exchange 2010 stop working.

This is not normal behaviour, you should definitely figure this out soon before you can remove the old server. What does eventlog say about starting and stopping of the EIS service?

There's still a reference to the old server. Is the old server the antivirus server ?
Or can you check the System Settings in the Exchange Management Console > Server Configuration > to the right, right mouse click on the server, then tab System Settings, is it pointing to the old server?

Yes - Exchange 2010 Management Console Server Configuration properties System Settings Tab shows old server as Domain Controller and Global Catalog Server used by Exchange.

So let it point to itself, as you already stated all FSMO roles were already transfered.

Do I change this in Server Configuration - Modify Configuration Domain Controller? Set to use a Default Domain Controller now.

Any other settings that need to be changed?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, set both lines (domain controller, config server). After restart it should work, but double check the previous system settings tab I told you to look before that it changed properly. After that, shutdown old server, reboot new server to double check it's working properly.
