Moved Servers and Site is Gone from Google

I moved our organizations long established site over to a dedicated server last week. Around an hour ago the site completely disappeared from the google index. When

In my google webmaster account I don't show any cache or pages indexed.

When I do a DNS check on it this comes up:

No NS A records at nameservers

WARNING: Your nameservers do not include any corresponding A records when asked for your NS records. They probably are not returning the A records when asked, which can prevent some other DNS servers from contacting your DNS servers. They should do this if they are authoritative for those A records (in BIND, you should not use 'minimal-responses yes;'). The problem record(s) are:

Nameserver #*$!.#*$!.xx.x did not provide any IPs
Nameserver #*$!.#*$!.xx.x did not provide any IPs

Can this DNS issue have this effect? Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed? I am totally freaking out and don't know what to do. The site isn't in the supplemental or cache either.

I would appreciate any insight into this. Should I contact google through my webmaster account?

I am not sure if there are issues with the move but what you relayed was only a Warning, which typically are not that serious.

One site I am monitoring has basically disappeared from Google as well just in the last 3 hours as well (at 7pm EST on December 10th).

-shows pages a pretty accurate page count but when I scroll through the results, they are not there. Only 150 pages are shown when there should be thousands.

site:example.com (and some word that is on every page)
-shows only 2 results when the query should return thousands

Maybe this helps to know that others are experiencing something similar. Hang tight, hopefully Google just lost our sites for a while.

It is very strange. The site still shows its pagerank but no indexed, cached or sandboxed pages at all. Would pagerank still be displayed if it was completely banned? This site has been around for many years and has tons of original content, forums, research and more...

My pages are showing pagerank and they are not in the cache.

My homepage is in the cache and it ranks 2nd for a search with 240K results. What is more odd is that this is very popular term and last week this term was showing 2.4 million results.

I have a feeling others are experiencing this. I am thinking of starting new thread (the "moved servers" in this threads title might be a bit confusing).
