How do I clean up DNS old/stale entries?

I have set the zone aging/scavenging to no-refresh interval is set to 7 days and refresh interval is set to 7 days.  This is not cleaning out the old dns entries.

Setting the zone aging/scavenging option as described in question is propably ok, but you also nead to enable the automatic scavenging option in DNS server properties -> Advanced.  See screenshot in the blog link Mike posted.
