The DNS server list of restricted interfaces contains IP addresses that are not configured for use at the server computer.
Use the DNS manager server properties, interfaces dialog, to verify and reset the IP addresses the DNS server should listen on.  For more information, see "To restrict a DNS server to listen only on selected addresses" in the online Help.

    Hi Roads Roads,
    Yes I had already looked at this but still can't figure it out. When I try to remove the old ip address of our old dc i get the message that The server interfaces cannot be updated because there is an invalid ip address.
    Thanks !

    Did you tried to switch to all IP address, then to reconfigure the IP's. If not try to configure one of your interfaces with the missing IP, then restart the DNS service and try to remove the faulty IP.
