if you have
A record

and you have a virtual machine with a static ip address of and a name of myserver and you turn off this machine, start another machine

myserver2, set its ip address to (static)..
on the domain controller go to the DNS settings and delete the previous record and add the myserver2

you should be good to go immediately, unless you have several domain controllers and then it has to replicate across.
