I made DNS changes to a website last night.  I moved it over to a new server so it has a new IP address.

However ping it from inside my network still resolves to the old IP. Like my SBS DNS is not updating.

How can I make my SBS go outand get the new IP instead of cacheing the old one?  If I ping the site from outside my network it resolves correctly.  I thought maybe my isp was dragging on the updates but if I ping from outside my network but from somewhere with the same ISP it resolves correctly.

any ideas.
