  • IP Addressing Issues

    Hi

    I have a 2008 x64 Standard server with SP2.

    I am having a strange issue with the IP addressing on the server.

    If I set the IP Address to Static Addressing, the Default Gateway sets, but the IP Address and Subnet Mask resort to an automatic address (169.)

    If I attempt to alter this I can, but as soon as the server reboots it reverts back to the automatic address.

    I have attempted the repair network connection but to no success. I have also run a netsh winsock reset command but this hasn't made any difference.

    So if anyone out there could help I would be very greatful...

    Many Thanks

    That's strange, can you post a snapshot here, before and after a restart?

      Very wierd
      Try removing (in device manager) the NiC and letting windows re-detect and reinstall it
      Alternatively try updating NiC drivers

        I've seen something similar to that before, does the server have a Broadcom NIC?

        I had this on a Dell server and the solution was browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> System -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Network and delete the config key and reboot the server. It was Dell support that gave me that, although it is apparently a Microsoft issue.

          Curious case... I once had the contrary: everything except the gateway was set. A reboot cured the problem though. Are you using Windows GUI to change network parameters? Have you tried WMI/PowerShell approach?
