    We have DNS running on our Windows 2003 SP1 Domain controllers, with
    integrated primary and reverse DNS zones.

    We recently renamed one of our DB servers from 'med3217' to 'med3217old'.
    The problem is that the original name is still resolvable.

    ping med3217 ---> works
    ping [email protected] ---> doesnt work
    ping -a ---> resolves to old name

    I tried deleting the old PTR record but it comes back after a refresh.

    It comes back even if I delete the HOST record.

    I fixed the problem. I had to:
    1. Change out of Active Directory Integrated mode on one DC.
    2. Stop the DNS Service on that DC
    3. Edit the DNS file under C:\Winnt\System32\DNS
    4. Update the Serial number to something higher
    5. Start the DNS Service
    6. Change back to AD Integrated mode
    7. Reload DNS Zone on other DC a few times

    The old record is now gone for good.
