Domain Rename on Server 2003 and Group Policy Objects

I have renamed my domain (according to the "Windows Server 2003 Step-by-Step Guide to Implementing Domain Rename" document).  Everything seems to be working fine except for one issue which has to deal with GPO.  For some reason the userenv service is trying to bind to the old domain (xxx.com) as opposed to the new domain (internal.xxx.com).  I have been through a pile of documentation, checked the AD database (via dsquery *), and looked at about everything I can but I cannot find where to change this.  Can anyone offer some advice?  Here are the relative event log entries


Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Windows cannot bind to xxx.com domain. (Local Error). Group Policy processing aborted.

Thanks!

Do you have the support tools installed? Run dfsutil /PurgeMupCache (or install the tools and run dfsutil /PurgeMupCache).

I found a way to remove the reference.  I installed the GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) and was able to delete the link to the old group policy object.  Thanks for the help.
