DC / DNS server IP change

I changed the IP address of my Domain Controller and file server.  The network drives I map use DNS names (\\server\share).  After the IP change, I updatred A records, network adapters on the clients, and I cannot attach to them with the DA account that I logged into the computer with.  However, I found a work around by authenticating with another DA account (same rights), but this account still cannot write to these drives.  

This is only occurs on one Vista desktop, all my XP machines work fine with the changes.

have you tried the commands
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns

that will force the workstation to go get the new records.

Many times.  Also ran gpupdate /force to push the drive mappings again.  

It says I don't have permissions on a DA account when I try to write to the network drive, but I can work it fine from any XP machine.

Try to disconnect the network drive and then map it again.  (manually)

Tried all the other suggestions, I ended up logging in as local admin, then tried to login again with a DA account, I got "The trust relationship between this computer and domain has failed", I knew there was no other way.  

Removed, added back, kept the same profile, and the network drives allo RW access.  

Thanks everyone, but Mike gets it this time.
