I think there are several issues at work here.
To avoid confusion I'll just deal with one issue per post.
I think I need to clear cache files from a demoted DNS server.
( cache files pertaining to ns and mx zone records)
How should go about clearing cache files from a linux server and a window 2003 server?
I did search for an answer to this question, both on google and this forum.
Looking forward to your response. Thanks alot!
