Make clients point to new DNS server

We recently setup a new DNS server. Its a Windows Server 2003. DC/DHCP/DNS. Clients are all using DHCP. How do we make it so the clients start pointing to the new DNS server and the new DHCP server without manually configuring their IP.

If they are using DHCP then go to the DHCP Console and edit the Scope options (specifically option006 DNS Servers and pointit at the new DNS server), the client will get the update when the lease is renewed (or you can force it by running IPCONFIG /renew) on the clients.

Just noticed you said it was a NEW DHCP server - so switch OFF the old DHCP server then do as above - clients will get a new IP from the new server.
