Windows 2003 DNS question?

I have a test domain I use which has 1 Domain Controller.

I have just moved this test domain controller to a completely different physical network and turned it on and when I try to launch any of the AD tools I get an error that it cant lcoate a domain controller:

THis is down to DNS as all the DNS records have got the old records from the old network - old ip addresses etc.

I have run ipconfig /registerdns to register the new ip address but is there a method for removing all the old records from the old network?

go into DNS manager,

make sure that all your forward & reverse zones now have the new IP
review your records within your F&R zones and change accordingly.
modify your NS record SOA and increment by 1
update server datafiles

the IP of hte server will need to be re-registered, make sure that the IP settings are set for automatic DNS registratio.

the DNS server (itself presumably) will need to be set to allow for automatic updates from clients.

IP setting of the server should reflect that it points to itselt for DNS and WINS, if you use WINS.

In DNS you may be able to reload the zone, but may have to delete and re-create it /them.
