I am using server 2003 r2 sp1

I have recently changed its domain name using dcpromo. everything went ok. DNS is setup ok too. but I'm getting a few similar events  as follows:

Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'ForestDnsZones.webresmain.com.' failed.  These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).  

This is the old domain name. I have ran the following nltest /dsderegdns:webresmain.com . This is meant to edit the %systemroot%\system32\config\netlogon.dns and strip out all references to this domain but ti doesn't. If I manually delete these  and save the file off - they reappear after a reboot or just a longs period of time. Any clues?
