IP conflict on a DHCP network
Posted on 2007-10-04
I have a network setup with a DHCP server and all of the clients are set to dynamic. The network printers and servers are set to static ip addressess that are documented. I have one computer that whenever I set it to get a dynamic ip, every time it tells me that there is an ip conflict. I can go onto the DHCP server, release the ip address that it is having a conflict with and I can do a ping on that ip address and nothing comes up. When I try to get an ip address dynamically from that computer I get the same thing all over again. I can however set it to a static address. What am I missing? On the DHCP server I have a range reserved that should stay static and should not be handed out, and the ips that this computer has conflicts with are no where in that range.
