Thanks for looking at my issue, let me set up the stage here

My shop had 1 server that servered as the dchp,dns, AD, etc server. This box was 2000 server on a workgroup enviroment. The box being old I bought 2 more server. Also buying 2003 server std and exchange 2003 for both the new servers. I brought server 1 up as the DC on a domain network, and server 2 up as the exchange machine. Server 1 will be the everything box, hosting dchp,dns,AD, and everything else. Server 2 is my exchange machine that host my website,exchange and is secondary DNS. Nothing else on server 2.

My issue is with DNS. With DNS I had my new server 1 become the secondary dns and I did a zone transfer over from the old server to it. I also had server 2 do the same thing from the old server and left it as secondary DNS. The new server 1 I set as primary. Now on my clients machine I have everything set up automaticly from dhcp. In DCHP I set up where dns is, host name, and gateway. Now when I reboot a client machine and log into my domain I get my old server ip address as primary dns and server 2 as secondary. What I want to happen is my new server 1 to be the primary dns and my new server 2 as the secondary. All happening automaticly with out hard entering anything into the network stack.

I also can't find any referance to the old server anywhere that would be telling it to be primary dns. I took any referance to the old server out of DNS even and I still can't get the new server to resolve as primary DNS.  I also shut off the old server completly and disconnected it from the network.

I hope I explaned that ok and thanks again for helping me.

Check the scope options in DHCP, sounds like you might still have reference to the old server in there.
