The users’ PC’s logged in on the “shares” of “server management” module of Windows Server SBS 2003 are not getting their IP’s updated, i.e., if I run the iPconfig on a local machine DELL-TEST and find the IP address is 192.168.0.40, and when  ping the DELL-TEST form the server I get a different IP returned. Do you know what’s causing this and how to correct?

Check if the DNS Entry in DNS for DELL-TEST is correct.  Perhaps when pinging DELL-TEST the DNS server is returning an incorrect IP address.

That's exactly what is happening.  In your DNS Server, you'll see the records pointing to that client.  It isn't an immediate change.  You can either go in and delete the old record, or you can scavenge old records entirely.  You also change change the amount of time before stale records are removed.

I'd delete the PTR records in your DNS server and then perform an ipconfig /flush DNS on the workstation and server.
