Exchange 2010 services will not start after adding a 2008 Domain controller to network

I had a 2003 DC that crashed. I promoted a 2008 server to Domain Controller with DNS and DHCP server.  All computers on my network are connecting to the new DC but Exchange gets stuck on PLEASE WAIT FOR USER PROFILE SERVICE.  If I go into active directory and remove the user profile script and home folder then I can logon with the admin account.  After it logs in none of the exchange services will start.  I'm thinking this is a DNS server issue but not sure.  I get to Errors in the DNS best practice analyzer and have found fixes that I applied but the errors are still present.  The errors are below.

Issue:
The Active Directory integrated DNS zone _msdcs.raptor.local was not found.

Impact:
DNS queries for the Active Directory integrated zone _msdcs.raptor.local might fail.

Resolution:
Restore the Active Directory integrated DNS zone _msdcs.raptor.local.

And:
Issue:
The network adapter Local Area Connection does not list the loopback IP address as a DNS server, or it is configured as the first entry.

Impact:
If the loopback IP address is the first entry in the list of DNS servers, Active Directory might be unable to find its replication partners.

Resolution:
Configure adapter settings to add the loopback IP address to the list of DNS servers on all active interfaces, but not as the first server in the list.

How many DCs you have ?
Are client computers able to logon on their workstations with new DC ?
Does new deployed DC is Global catalog sever ? if not please make it 1st
Make sure the exchange server's ip config has the new DC's DNS settings, meaning make sure it's pointing to the new DC and not the decommissioned server.
Then restart the exchange server and check if it works

One DC.
All computets and file servers are logging in fine.
New DC is a GC
IP has been configured with static IP and DNS.
Restarted multiple times with the same result.  Gets stuck at Please wait for user profile service.

I can remove the logon script and home folder from Active Directory Users for the admin account I'm using and it logs in but exchange services still do not start.

I can ping the exchange server from the network and I can access the network drives once I'm logged into exchange.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

If not please add, reboot and check if it works

Is that in AD Users and Computers?  If so I only see a Microsoft Exchange Security Group.

Just enable advanced view in ADUC and check " Microsoft Exchange System Objects" if you can view

There you should find that group

Since I orginally had a 2003 Domain controller and the replacement is a 2008.  Does anything need to be run on the Exchange server to make this work.  It's just odd.  I can login to the exchange server and ping and access all network drives.  I can't open the internet and when I try to access the NIC properties it locks up.  I've tried reinstalling the nic.  I can ping the exchange server from other computers.  One thing I can't do now is remote desktop into the exchange server.
