NICs will keep renewing the same IP address
Posted on 2004-08-19
I have DHCP/DNS running on a Windows 2000 Server. There are 2 scopes handing out IP addresses.
My problems is this: When i physically bring a computer from one scope to the location of the second scope, I cannot renew a new IP address from the new location.
I have even removed the card and placed it in another machine, and it still pulls the same IP address.
If I statically set it to an IP address in the new location, it's fine.
I have gone into the DHCP area and deleted the entry, but that doesn't help. I just renews the same IP. There are no reservations in the scope.
There doesn't seem to be a pattern as to a certain type/brand of NIC.
WINs is not enabled on that scope.
Not sure what may be going on.
Thanks for any help.
