ERROR DNS: BAD KEY

I have just moved my offices to another location.  Thought everything would be simple.  Reconnected everything and my Domain controller has an event describing "Deregistration of the DNS record .....(domain name).  DNS bad key."  What could this possibly mean?

Assuming a W2k domain, here are some troubleshooting links. For netdiag.exe and dcdiag.exe described in the articles, you'll need the Support Tools, but if you haven't installed them yet, do NOT install them from the CD, download the latest version instead (URL is below as well).
