Using the DNSMGMT MMC -

* Right click the server name in the left-pane, select 'clear cache'

Using the command line -

C:\> dnscmd <your name server here> /clearcache

... e.g. -

C:\>dnscmd light.mset.local /clearcache
light.mset.local completed successfully.
Command completed successfully.

A little late but I guess I missed the first notify -- anyways, this is a very poor solution and it doesn't scale at all.  It is akin to trying to deal with a child's boo-boo by throwing the child away and getting a new one (strong analogy, I know).  While the EE points for the question make no diff. to me one way or the other, people do review these questions for years to come for supportable and recommended solutions -- the selected solution doesn't fit into either of those categories -- especially when the correct and direct solution to the problem has also been provided.
