DNS cleanup tool

Are there any tools for cleaning up and Windows 2008 DNS server?
I have 3 DNS servers on 3 different sites.  I mucked the DNS server on one site up and fixed it but there are still a few OLD DNS records in the DNS.

I just want clean DNS records but don't want to delete them by hand.

You need to enable and turn on scavenging.

Yes, I agree. Use Aging and Scavenging to manage stale DNS records. This is very good blog about that

(suggested by Mike in this EE post

or use DNSCMD for manual/script management. DNSCMD is a part of Windows 2003 Support Tools or installed on 2008 Server with DNS role.
