Active Directory cleanup

I recently performed a Windows Server 2003 to SBS 2011 migration which worked really well, but the new server has inherited some strange DNS issues from the previous server.  It appears that the server I migrated from had already been migrated from and SBS 2003 server in the past, so it's all a bit messy.  Does anybody know of a good AD 'housekeeping' tool a bit like Ccleaner does for cluttered registry?  I can of course ADSIEDIT old servers out, just wanted something a bit more elegant that can have a good look at the AD and suggest improvements and carry them out.

Thanks.

There is a nice free tool called oldcmp that will work on users and computers

http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/oldcmp/

adtidy is a free GUI tool   http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADTidy/Info.html 

These tools help ID old computers and users to cleanup your AD some.

Nothing really for the registry...wouldn't mess with anything there

Thanks
