Change AD and DNS server but old DNS server keeps showing up

We have moved our active directory and dns server from a windows 2003 server to a 2012 server. I removed the dns server role from the 2003 server and the AD role from it as well.  However, I had to manually set each machine in our building to point to the new dns server IP address.  

There has to be something I missed, even though I slavishly followed the steps recommended by Microsoft's technet to do this move.  I am OK with having to set this manually in this small environment, but I would much rather know why the issue is happening and how to fix it.

Any ideas?

Are the machines all getting their IP addresses through DHCP? If so, it sounds like you need to update the DNS Server settings for the DHCP scope.

DHCP comes through our router and not our server.  WIll look at the router, but I don't think it has the dns settings on it.

That did the trick - there was a setting buried under a lot of layers of menus that had the old DNS server on it.  That has now fixed the problem.

Thanks
