How to remove old DNS server on Windows 2003 after Migration to Windows 2008

I recently migrated from  Windows 2003 server to a Window 2008 server. The DNS appears to be working correctly, but when I look in the DNS Manager on the Windows 2008 server  I still see the Windows 2003 server name under the Foward Lookup zones (along with the new server).  I'm assuming I didn't do something correctly, but I'm not sure how I clean up these references and make sure I have evertying optimal in the DNS space.  

 The old server has already been reimaged.

You can just remove the old records if your server does not exist anymore.

I had tried some manual removals previously, but after reboot they all seemed to re-appear. Could it be reading this information from somewhere else?

This server was also the single point for AD.  I was able to xfer all AD roles over to the new server and run dc promo to demote the old server.  I kept it around to ensure no issues, so now here we are.

Is it still a DNS server in your network, you should alse de-install DNS.

Last thing you should do is to remove it from your nameserver list in your DNS properties on the Windows 2008box.

It wasn't still on the network.  I placed it back on the network and removed the service.  The records I was asking about earlier have all been updated and the old DNS server entries are gone. Thanks PenguinN.
