Hi
The registration in DNS in normal operation is automatic. So if you change the IP for a machine and run ipconfig/registerDNS the data is updated. If you made this record manually then search in the zone for that record and change it manually. On WINS the process is fully automated so you can delete the record and wait to be rerecorded. First check the WINS server, delete the old record, then check the DNS.

Use the console mmc for DNS and click on Name or Data. There is no search engine.
