The web site for a client was moved to a new host. Now the workstations in the domain cannot find the website. I have cleared the cache on the workstations but did not help. I changed the DNS on the workstation from the server address to 8.8.8.8 and it works. Where is the old DNS record stored on the server and how do I clear it?

issue the command:
ipconfig /flushdns
...from the 2007 server to clear its cache.
Also, from the 2007 server, you can try to stop/restart the "DNS Client" service.

You can also celar the cache on the domain controllers (assuming they are the ones your 2007 server is using for DNS) - by logging onto the DC's, opening the DNS MMC, (make sure you are viewing "Advanced" details) and right click on every DNS server in the domain and choose "clear cache". After that, go back to the 2007 server and issue the command again from above.
