i am trying to find in ADSI Edit where the objects like CAS Array objects, databases, Exchange Administrative Group, etc.

Is there supposed to be a fixed path for this or could it have been moved in AD?

In ADSIEdit.msc you will find all of the Exchange data informaiton in the Configuration Partition. The full path is below...
"CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com"

With in there you will see Administrative Groups, once you expand that you will see all of the proceeding folders that reference all of the other exchange objects.

When you open ADSIEdit it will ask you to Connect to.... You need to connect to the Configuration Partition.

If you are connected to another partition like Default Naming Context you will not see it.
