if this is a DNS issue then it needs to be corrected. SA needs to locate the GC 
otherwise it will not start. There is no workaround. run a NETDIAG and a DCDIAG 
and get a clean report. If its not clean then its difficult to start the SA. 
See in your DSACCESS ( directory access TAB on the server properties and make 
sure the GC's are discovered as well as the DC's

  Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 not connecting after domain migration

  i have an exchange 2003 up and running on windows 2000 domain. 

  i upgraded the domain to windows 2003 on the same hardware. After the domain 
upgrade the exchange services doesnt start, i.e. the system attendent service 
fails to start. I know this is due to the DNS. Is there any workaround for this.

  Earlier i did the domain migration on the different hardware by installing an 
Additional DC and promoting to DC and transferring all the 5 FSMO. even in this 
situation the exchange services didnt came up.

  i am in an hanging position, need to have exchange running on new domain ASAP
