Exchange 2007 & Server 2008

So at the new job we're setting up a lab and it was up to me to get Exchange 2007 running in it. The Exchange server is a 2003 x64 machine and the dc is a 2008 machine. Got the OS installed properly on both and joined to the domain. Exchange wasn't having anything to do with it though. Kept saying it couldn't find a gc on test 2-4 though it passed test 1. We re-did the environment a number of times but still got the same error. Even made the Exchange server a dc and put the gc on it but still no love. Finally put dns on it and then it would work properly. So my question is does anyone know why Exchange wasn't liking the dns on the 2008 server? I don't have time to experiment with it now to dig into the issue and find out what was blocking things. And yes I took the firewalls down on both machines. My guess is that it has something to do with security on the 2008 machine but I'm not familiar enough with Server 2008 yet to really be able to pinpoint what. I'll be trying it out in my lab back home this weekend if I get some time though. So just looking for any ideas?
