I removed our old DNS server and replaced it with a new one over two weeks ago.  When I do ipconfig /all from the computers they still show the old DNS server.  
How do I fix this?

I changed the DHCP server.  When will the computers get the new DNS server?  At reboot?

when they renew the ipaddress from the DHCP or run ipconfig /renew on client side.
..just make sure DNS server entry is not made on client side.
