Dissapearing IP Addresses

Posted on 2005-05-04

I am having trouble with a Windows 2000 Server. The problem first showed up when I noticed that I was having DNS problems. I went to the properties of the network card and they were showing that they were using DHCP. I know that this is not the case because this has been a static internal address since the day this server was installed. I have changed the properties of the network card to use the static ip, close the properties of this network card, go back to check the address again and it will show that it is dynamic again. What could be going on? I have Norton Server Antivirus and Spyware scanners on this machine. I can not fix my DNS problems until I get this problem fixed. Any suggestions??!!

    After changing the required settings on the network card, disable and enable the card (network adapter), then check if the changes have held on.
