TCP/IP Properties are not remembered / saved

We used HP's server migration software to move a Windows 2000 server from older hardware to a new HP DL380 server.

When we make changes to the TCP/IP Properties (forced IP address/gateway/DNA), they are changed for the current session (seen by looking at IPCONFIG / ALL).

But when the server is reboot, the TCP/IP Properteis go back to Obtain an IP address automatically.

Also, after we make changes to the TCP/IP Properties and click OK, and then immediately reopen the TCP/IP Properties screen (no rebooting), the settings are not saved and go back to Obtain an IP address automatically.

This server is our Active Directoy Server.

Any suggestions?

Some ideas:
1. try to repair your connection: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/maintain/repair.mspx
2. try to remove the drivers for the network card and reboot. Upon restarting Windows will start the "Found New Hardware" wizard. Reinstall the card with the latest drivers and then configure TCP/IP protocol stack.

Some ideas:
1. Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Advanced->Environment Variables->System Variables->Path variable and check if there is %SystemRoot% and %SystemRoot%\System32 in definition. If there is no such entries, that could be a problem.
2. Install netdiag (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1EA70814-7E6C-46E5-8C8C-3C439A732E9F&displaylang=en, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321708) and run commands:
netdiag /test:winsock /v
netdiag /test:ipconfig /test
See what diagnostics says
3. Try to configure TCP/IP from command line: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=242468, http://www.petri.co.il/configure_tcp_ip_from_cmd.htm
