Here is the problem.
I have a Server 2K8 R2 running Exchange 2010 SP3. One month ago i changed my DC to another DC running Server 2K8 R2. Both were 2K8 R2.Demoted the old one without any problem using DCPromo. Now i am trying to add an email address to a new user and get an error message saying:
Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
Enable-Mailbox -Identity '********/Transformateur Delta/Granby/Bureau/Genie Industriel/Alexandre St-Jean' -Alias 'alexandre.st-jean'

Exchange is trying to communicate with old DC. I checked everywhere i could, in ADUC,ADSS,in EMC all settings point to the good server,DNS (only thing in is a Alias of DC03 pointing to new DC),Exchange power shell -Get ADServerSettings : fl gives the good info as well as netdom /query fsmo.
Used up all my resources!!!
thank you very much.
