nslookup shows a host from a decommissioned DHCP scope

Months ago I applied a new subnet mask to my network, allowing more hosts.  I took the IP addresses in question from the dynamic DHCP scope and assigned them as additional static addresses.  Today, I find that nslookup for IP addresses in the decommissioned dynamic scope shows me the hostname of a DHCP node that is actually at a different IP in the new dynamic scope.  The node I assigned as a static IP in this new static scope (the decommissioned range of my dynamic scope) shows the hostname that could only have come from a lease in the old network instead of the correct hostname.
The DHCP configuration on a Windows Server2008R2 domain controller looks right, but something got missed.  This is the only server in the domain with that role.

Without assuming too much I would check into the following;

Try ipconfig /flushdns to see if that clears DNS cache.
May be check your DNS for any static DNS entry for that host.
Does the host have a second adapter / secondary IP?

Turns out that there was no static entry for the current hostname at that address..  I added some static addresses and enabled DHCP scavenging.  Thanks
