After installing new domain controller and removing the old one, I get this error that won't go away.  Help?

Hello experts,

Well I installed a new domain controller replacing our old Windows Server 2003 OS server with a Windows Server 2008 r2 one.  Everything works good on the user end and even on the server end, but right after removing the old server from the network, I am getting this error that will not go away on the new server.  How do I get rid of it?  Everything is still working fine and how it should, so to me, this error is pointless(unless it means something is going to get screwed up soon and I don't know about it but should), but how do I get rid of it?  The error is attached.

    did you move over FSMO roles before demoting the old DC?

    Did you transfer all of the FSMO roles?  Also, take a look at this:

    Check the DNS Settings ...Have you replaced those with IP of new DC

    The ip address of the new domain controller is the same as the old one, but the computer name is a little different.
