Recently switched our network from 192.168.2.x to 10.2.1.x and I'm still getting a 192.168.2.0 subnet address that is causing some major headaches here. Anyone know of an easy way to locate this subnet and shut it down?

What do you mean 'still getting"?  Are machines still getting DHCP in the 192.168.2.0 range?

The 192.168.2.0 range is causing routing issues with another one of our offices in another part of the country.

Go to one of your machines that is getting the IP address (192.168.2.0) and run an ipconfig/all it will tell you the DHCP server IP address.

GO to the machine either RDP/VNC/Physically and disable the dhcp service/remove the scope or what not.

If your switches supports that function you can also block any DHCP other than the one you specify.
I can't remember the exact name of the function in general. On procurve switches it's called DHCP-snooping.
