Windows Server 2003
We are running 2003 server and dns for the network. A website changed its iP address and we still have the old one cached. How can we fix this? Ipconfig /flushdns on the client and server did nothing nor did restarting the dns service on the client and server.

Software/Hardware used:
Windows 2003, dns
