GID mappings cached?

We had a mapping to one UNIX box just fine, the server was changed to another UNIX box and now when mapping drives from Windows box to new UNIX box, we get the old GID associated with our Windows user. When checking on new UNIX box, we see GID of 108, which is what we want, but when we map the drive (successfully), and create a directory, it is permissioned to the correct UID, but the GID is 109(the old GID on the old UNIX box). Is this caching somewhere? We restarted NFSD. We can create a directory, and delete it, but can't rename it even though it is owned by the right UID even though GID is off? Thanks for any advice....

genrbox - generate a RADIANCE description of a box SYNOPSIS
genrbox mat name xsiz ysiz zsiz [ -i ][ -r rad | -b bev ] DESCRIPTION
Genbox produces a RADIANCE scene description of a parallelepiped with one corner at the origin and the opposite corner at (xsiz, ysiz, zsiz). The sides of the box will be parallel to the three coordinate planes. The surfaces that make up the box will be modified by mat and their identifiers will begin with name. The -i option can be used to produce a box with inward directed surface normals. The -r option can be used to specify the radius for rounded edges. The -b option can be used to specify the indentation for beveled edges. EXAMPLE
To produce a rectangular box made of wood with beveled edges: genrbox wood box1 5 8 3 -b .5 > box1 AUTHOR
Greg Ward BUGS
Because spheres and cylinders are used to construct boxes with rounded edges, a transparent box of this type appears quite messy. SEE ALSO
