Loss of IP address
Posted on 2005-04-29
I am not a network administrator, but I have been tasked by my job to administer the server. We have a Windows 2003, Small Business server that has 7 laptops and 6 printers.
One of our users told me that she could not print, so when I looked at it, I noticed that her IP address was gone. We have been up and running since January 05 and she has had this same IP address since then. To get her up and running, I changed her IP address - which not an easy task for me. Now I am worried that there is a software or hardware problem somewhere in the LAN. 192.168.1.130 has disappeared. Do you have any ideas or how I can trouble shot this, or anything?
I appreciate it.
