I have a customer with a new Windows Server r2 running Essentials role. Everything migrated from old Windows SBS 2003 server. New server DNS manager still shows IP of old demoted (and now retired) server.

I checked in DNS and there are some entries that are still listing the old SBS server as a DNS server complete with the (now inactive) IP address of the old server.

DNS, New Server, Forward Lookup Zone, old server (showing as an Alias (CNAME)
